Crunch time beckons for Brexit talks

[ May 27, 2020   //   ]

With the latest round of Brexit negotiations getting under way between the UK and EU on 1 , the Freight Transport Association is urging officials to prioritise the needs of the industry on both sides of the Channel in the talks.

FTA European policy manager Sarah Laouadi, said: “It is of paramount importance that progress is made now towards the creation of a trade agreement that’s acceptable to both parties. The UK has outlined its proposed free trade agreement, which the EU has had time to consider. With so little time left before both sides are due to take stock of the negotiations and assess whether a deal can be finalised within the Brexit deadlines, it is now imperative that progress is made at the talks.”
