November 2020

With all the news articles last week about the US presidential elections, we would almost forget that we are waiting for news about the Brexit negotiations.

However, the news that Joe Biden has won the US presidential election may increase the efforts for a Brexit deal by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Where Trump was in favor of Brexit, Joe Biden is not. It therefore seems likely that Biden will strengthen ties with the EU. The British also thought they could quickly conclude a trade deal with Trump that would make the agreement with the EU less urgent. Perhaps now the British would still prefer to make a trade deal with the EU.

The fact is that there is only under two months left for the United Kingdom and the European Union to reach an agreement. Despite there is no progress and the time is running out, the parties continue to negotiate.

De Europese Unie en het Verenigd Koninkrijk zijn het op veel fronten niet met elkaar eens. Het grootste pijnpunt is het akkoord voor vrijhandelsverkeer, het vrijhandelsakkoord. De onderhandelingen zitten muurvast en de absolute deadline voor een Brexit deal lijkt zo dan ook niet gehaald te worden en een Brexit zonder handelsakkoord dreigt.
