Free trade deal bodes well for business confidence

Commenting on the post-Brexit free trade deal agreed with the EU, Stephen Haddrill, Director General of the FLA said: “As always in trade talks, the devil is in the detail but we appear to have a deal that will enable UK goods to be sold without tariffs or quotas in the EU market – that bodes well for business confidence, leading to renewed investment and lending as we enter 2021 and begin the long economic recovery from the Covid impact.”
