Ibec Tracker on EU-UK Future Relationship
On 24 December 2020, the EU and UK announced a deal had been reached on the terms of future cooperation, a Trade and Cooperation Agreement including a free trade agreement. The agreement details the terms of the EU and the UK trading relationship from 1 January 2021 and includes three main parts:
1. A Free Trade Agreement (FTA), including cooperation on economic, social, environmental and fisheries policies;
2. A partnership on citizens’ security;
3. An overarching governance framework.
Ibec has developed this in-depth tracker to summarise the key aspects of the agreement, analyse the impact for Irish business and to assist business leaders to follow developments on the post-Brexit EU-UK economic and trading relationship. It will be updated as the agreed arrangements are implemented, outstanding issues progressed and arising difficulties are addressed.
