UK businesses will be relieved to see that a rollover trade deal with Canada has been sealed. The rollover deal provides a platform for deepening the trading relationship further in the years to come.
The Government has successfully sealed a number of rollover trade deals now, but more deals must come with key markets, including Australia, Singapore and Turkey.
The most important trade deal to be sealed is the Brexit deal with the EU. Businesses on both sides are desperate for an agreement to be reached. The UK Government must redouble their efforts this week to give businesses the certainty they need to continue trading with the EU next year.
