1) Zero tariffs and zero quotas to EU under the deal – first nation to ever do this with EU
Mr Johnson today described the agreement, worth £660 billion as “the biggest trade deal yet”.
He said it was a “comprehensive Canada style free trade deal between the UK and the EU” that would “protect jobs across this country” and “allow UK goods and components to be sold without tariffs and without quotas in the EU market.”
He added it was a “deal which will if anything should allow our companies and our exporters to do even more business with our European friends, and yet which achieves something that the people of this country instinctively knew was doable but which they were told was impossible.”
A foreword of the UK/EU treaty written by the Prime Minister, adds: “This ambitious agreement – carefully judged to benefit everyone – is the first the EU has ever reached allowing zero tariffs and zero quotas.
“We will preserved the immense benefits of free trade for millions of people in the UK and across Europe.”
