POLITICO Pro briefing call: The UK’s trade agenda

The recording from last week’s Pro briefing call on U.K. trade is now available.

As negotiations between the U.K. and the EU on a free trade deal continue, POLITICO’s reporters and editors in London and Brussels sat down on Tuesday to discuss the chances of a Brexit deal and what the implications might be in a range of scenarios.

With London negotiating its first new independent trade agreements for over 40 years, the call also discussed the prospects of a trade deal with the U.S. and the implications of President-elect Joe Biden for Britain; the U.K.’s position on the global trade stage; what the deal with Japan tells us about how U.K. trade agreements will be scrutinized in future; and how businesses are feeding into the process of formulating the U.K.’s new trade policy — or are finding themselves out in the cold.
