Brexit: UK and Canada agree deal to keep trading under European Union terms

The U.K. agreed with Canada to maintain the trading conditions it has through its European Union membership and to begin talks on a broader deal that would pave the way for even closer links with Britain's 12th-biggest trading partner.
The two countries will begin negotiations next year to expand their commercial agreements to cover digital trade, the environment and women's economic empowerment, the U.K.'s Department for International Trade said in an emailed statement on Saturday. Last year, Canada was the U.K.'s 15th-largest export market.
The UK and Canada have agreed a deal to continue trading under the same terms as the current European Union agreement after the Brexit transition period ends.
"Our negotiators have been working flat-out to secure trade deals for the United Kingdom, and from as early next year we have agreed to start work on a new, bespoke trade deal with Canada that will go even further in meeting the needs of our economy".
The agreement could provide a major boost to U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson in his efforts to plot a new course for Britain as a global trading nation outside the EU.
Johnson's government says the ability to strike free trade agreements with countries around the world is one of the main benefits of leaving the EU. The U.K.is Canada's third-largest export market after the USA and China.
Industry groups expressed relief that businesses will not face higher trade tariffs with Canada next month but the British Chambers of Commerce director general, Adam Marshall, echoed Labour in warning that similar deals were urgently needed to avoid "a damaging cliff edge for both importers and exporters".
The deal with Canada locks in existing trading rules that cover 20 billion pounds ($27 billion) of trade between the two countries, or about 1.5% of the U.K.'s total trade in goods and services past year.
The U.K. has now secured post-Brexit trade deals with 53 countries accounting for 164 billion pounds ($218 billion) of bilateral trade, the government said. That's less than 12% of the 1.4 trillion pounds (about $1.9 trillion) of trade Britain recorded a year ago. "This is a good moment", Trudeau said.
