Investment Event May’s Brexit strategy undermined

Where are we with Brexit?

Following the UK Parliament’s overwhelming rejection of UK Prime Minister (PM) Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement in mid-January, the government has been attempting to renegotiate the deal with the EU. In particular, the focus of these talks has been on the “backstop” arrangements against a hard border in Ireland, which many UK Members of Parliament (MPs) are unhappy with. This would lock the UK into an indefinite customs arrangement with the EU if no trade deal is agreed before the end of the transition period (December 2020 at the earliest).
