star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is committed to making the UK the best place in the world to do business. As the Prime Minister set out in the White paper &quot;The United Kingdom’s Exit from and new partnership with the European Union&quot;, this will mean fostering a high quality, stable and predictable regulatory environment. We want to minimise the regulatory and market access barriers for both goods and services in trade with the EU. Discussions on regulatory equivalence will form part of the negotiations.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is the third largest European car producer with its competitiveness underpinned by using a highly integrated European supply chain to support just-in-time production. We want British companies, including automotive, to have the greatest possible tariff- and barrier-free trade with our European neighbours.</p><p>Negotiating a comprehensive free trade agreement with the EU, greater in scope than any such agreement before, is a priority for the Government as we leave the EU. We want tariff-free trade with Europe, and for cross-border trade to be as frictionless as possible. The UK starts from a unique position – where our rules and regulations are the same as the EU, and where we share a commitment to high regulatory standards. The terms of our future trading relationship with the EU are a matter for the negotiation, however we are confident that a future partnership between the UK and the EU is in the interest of both sides, so we approach the negotiations anticipating success.</p><p> </p>
