British trade will shift away from EU over time, says trade minister

Mon, 28th Sep 2020 11:06

LONDON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Britain's trade will shift away
from the European Union over time and towards parts of the world
which are experiencing faster growth, trade minister Liz Truss
said on Monday.

"Of course the EU trade deal is important but we have to
remember over time other parts of the world are going to become
relatively more important, first of all because those are the
places of faster growth, and secondly because as the UK develops
its own independent regulatory regime, we will be able to get
better access to those markets," Truss said.

"Over time I think we will see a shifting ... but of course
the EU will continue to be an important trade partner," she told
an event with the Spectator magazine.
