As part of the Withdrawal Agreement, the EU agreed to notify its treaty partners that the UK be treated as a Member State for the purposes of EU international agreements during the Implementation Period (IP). This includes trade agreements.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to prepare for all eventualities, including a ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario, in the event of which we will seek to bring into force bilateral agreements from exit day (29 March 2019) or as soon as possible thereafter. We are making good progress and have signed agreements with partner countries, such as Chile, the Faroe Islands and Eastern and Southern African Economic Partnership Agreement states, with others soon to follow. When we reach agreement with other countries will depend on the progress of ongoing discussions, taking into account their assessment of the possibility of a no deal; their own political or parliamentary situation; resource constraints and other factors. The Government will continue to inform Parliament and the public when agreements are signed.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Like all government departments, we have been preparing to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal for nearly three years. The Department for International Trade is putting in place a range of mitigations, which include signing trade continuity agreements with partner countries, developing a temporary tariff policy that will apply in the event of no deal and communicating relevant information to businesses.</p><p> </p><p>The Treasury has allocated over £4.2 billion of additional funding to departments and Devolved Administrations for EU exit preparations so far. This breaks down as £412m over the spending review period for the Department for Exiting the European Union, Department for International Trade and the Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office (Autumn Statement 2016); £286m of additional funding for 2017/18 (a full breakdown of which can be found in Supplementary Estimates 2017/18); over £1.5 billion for 2018/19 (Supplementary Estimates 2018/19); and over £2 billion for 2019/20 (Main Estimates 2019/20).</p><p> </p><p>This funding is to cover all exit scenarios and is in addition to departmental efforts to reprioritise from business as usual toward preparations for the UK’s departure from the EU. Work on no-deal exit preparations cannot be readily separated from other EU exit work, given the significant overlap in plans in many cases.</p>
