Brexit negotiations between the EU and the UK concluded on November 14, 2018, and an agreement was reached on the Withdrawal Agreement, which took place on January 31, 2020.
After the Brexit date, the ‘Transition Period’, which is expected to end on 31 December 2020, has started with the separation of the United Kingdom from the EU. During this period, the UK will be treated as an EU member country in terms of trade, thereby maintaining its position as a Customs Union partner for our country within the same period.
During the Transition Period, a new Trade Agreement will be negotiated, which will shape the future relations between the EU and the UK. In parallel with the negotiations, an STA negotiation process, with all its elements already prepared with the UK, is planned to be carried out with the Trade Working Group established between the two countries in order to make a bilateral trade agreement between our country and the United Kingdom.
