In the aftermath of the Britsh imbroglio that is “Brexit,” business leaders across the globe are curious what’s in store as the EU–UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) slowly comes into effect. Any normal trade agreement between two countries will have its nuance and complexity, but, given the context of Brexit, the TCA goes beyond traditional free trade agreements and provides a solid basis for preserving the longstanding friendship and cooperation between the 27 current Member States and 1 former one.
While trying to protect their respective interests, ensure fair competition, and continue cooperation in areas of mutual interest, the EU and UK tried to strike a balance. Despite the best of intentions, the Trade and Cooperation Agreement will disrupt the way in which businesses operate in the short- and medium-term.
