With this result a possibility, the United Kingdom secured a pure trade agreement with Norway and Iceland, which would only be valid after an exit without an EU agreement. Since the UK agreed on conditions in November 2019 and ratified the Brexit withdrawal agreement and left the EU at the end of January 2020, the deal has become obsolete and will therefore not enter into force. Ministers agreed that the new agreement provides an excellent basis for the preparation of our future trade relations. Ministers reaffirmed their commitment to strengthening and modernizing Chile`s flourishing trade relationship with the United Kingdom in the future.

After leaving the European Union, the UK plans to negotiate trade agreements to replace and complement members of the EU Customs Union. Since October 2020[update], the UK has concluded a new trade agreement (with Japan) for the continuation of 20 existing agreements (EU) and new negotiations are under way.
The British government calls itself a proponent of free trade.   As the UK prepares to leave the European Union (EU), all TRADE agreements concluded by the UK under the aegis of the EU will no longer exist. The UK is now committed to new agreements to maintain the diversification of its economy. One country that has recently collaborated with the United Kingdom is Chile, known as the Trade Continuation Agreement. Cooperation between these two countries is powerful in their own rights and offers positive trade benefits to businesses.

The British ambassador to Chile, Jamie Bowden, signed the agreement between Britain and Chile with Chilean Foreign Minister Roberto Ampuero in Santiago on Wednesday. “The UK is still working to reach an agreement with the EU on the terms of our withdrawal. The success of these discussions will determine whether the current agreement between the EU and Chile at the end of March this year or at the end of an implementation period will no longer apply to the UK,” Bowden said.
In order to save time and avoid the repetition of hundreds of textual pages, the continuity agreements, referring mutatis mutandis to the provisions of the EU agreement in this area, contain only the necessary changes. Most of the changes are purely formal and could be considered harmless – for example, replacing the “European Union” with the “United Kingdom” or adapting tariff quotas – both inside and outside – to take into account the size of the UK market.  Any trade agreement will aim to remove tariffs and remove other trade barriers that come into force. It will also cover both goods and services. “In both cases, the agreement we signed today means that there will be no interruption of trade between Britain and Chile if the UK leaves the EU.” The UK government is currently putting in place considerable resources to emulate EU trade deals with third countries, as the UK must leave them on Brexit day. To date, eight of these so-called continuity agreements have been signed and one is imminent with Norway.  Of these ac
