Add your name: Tell the UK Government to implement the UK Trade and Business Commission’s recommendations.

The UK Trade and Business Commission is cross party, cross industry and pretty cross that British businesses are being failed by the UK Government’s  post-Brexit trade deals. 

Their evidence based report, explains the burdens of costly new Brexit red tape and barriers to trade, which are artificially increasing costs for businesses and consumers at a time when global events threaten to hike prices even further. The Commission’s proposals are aimed at finding solutions to these problems as well as removing points of political tension between the UK and its closest neighbours around the Northern Ireland Protocol.

If you want to see a brighter future for British trade, sign our petition calling on the Government to implement these recommendations.

The Commission’s key recommendations are as follows:

 

  • There’s always room for improvement. UK trade agreements should be more inclusive and consultative in the way they are drawn up. Government and other stakeholders should assess the effect of trade deals on the UK’s economic structure and regularly revisit the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the EU. . 

 

  • Stick to the standards. The UK must remain aligned to EU regulation and standards when it comes to areas such as finance, regulatory frameworks and veterinary agreements. This will ensure smoother trading in future and bring stability to the UK’s trade. 

 

  • Strategic thinking. The UK should also develop and commit to a comprehensive trade strategy, rather than just a simple export target. The UK needs to attract investors through showcasing top talent and cutting-edge technology. 

 

  • Diplomatic developments. The UK needs to make sure it is trusted and respected on the international stage - and is seen as a good partner in diplomatic matters. 

 

  • Helping small businesses. The Government must keep supporting businesses by tailoring Visa regulations to help with staffing shortages and continually fine-tune policy to tackle setbacks as they arise. The Government must also put a successor to the Brexit Support Fund in place urgently. 

 

  • Protocol proactivity. The Commission recognises that the Northern Ireland protocol is currently the main focal point of contention with regards to the Brexit deal. The report recommends that both the EU and UK find a pragmatic way forward in current negotiations.

 

So ask the Government to take stock of the facts and face up to the realities ahead. More than ever, the recommendations of experts that sit on the Commission are needed to protect and preserve our international trade and to help consumers out with spiralling costs.
