When the UK leaves the EU on January 31st 2020, it will enter the final phase of a process leading to the erection of trade barriers with its most important trading partner. Rather than charging headlong into a trade agreement with the US, Britain’s priorities should be stabilising relationships with existing trade partners and regaining their trust. Meanwhile, it should develop a clearer idea of what it wants its freshly independent trade policy to achieve, and why. In the coming years the UK will need to convince trade partners that it has a constructive role to play in an era where openness to trade is on the wane. At the same time, it must be honest about its limited ability to shape the global trade agenda.
