Withdrawal Agreement Brexit Customs Union

The UK left the EU with a withdrawal agreement on 31 January 2020. On 15 November 2018, one day after the british government cabinet presented and supported the agreement, several members of the government resigned, including Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for Leaving the European Union. [28] This was the time for negotiations on the future relationship between the UK and the EU. During the transition period, the UK remained in the EU`s single market and customs union and has always contributed to the EU budget, while maintaining the free movement of citizens during this period, but it is no longer represented in EU decision-making bodies, including the European Parliament. The agreement was revised as part of the Johnson Ministry`s renegotiation in 2019. In the event of a hard Brexit, trade with the UK will be subject to general customs rules and regulations after the end of the transition period. Following the referendum on the United Kingdom`s accession to the European Union on 23rd June 2016, in which nearly 52% of the votes of the citizens of the United Kingdom (the United Kingdom) were in favour of leaving the EU, the United Kingdom presented a 12-point Brexit plan on 17th January 2017. This included the intention to leave the European single market and the European customs union, to conclude a strategic partnership with the EU and to conclude comprehensive free trade agreements for the United Kingdom itself. Receipt of the deal in the House of Commons ranged from cold to hostile and the vote was delayed by more than a month. .
