Brexit: what did we get for Christmas?


On 24 December 2020, following months of negotiations, the EU and the United Kingdom reached consensus on an extensive trade and cooperation agreement. The agreement contains rules covering trade, movement of persons and various areas of cooperation. It thus provides clarity on the way in which the United Kingdom and the EU will interact after 1 January 2021. That date saw an end to the transition period which had begun after the formal Brexit on 31 January 2020. The formal approval process is ongoing.
