The UK Government has started negotiations for trade agreements with the US, Australia and New Zealand. It also intends to pursue accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

On 11 September 2020 the Government reached ‘an agreement in principle’ with Japan – an important step towards the conclusion of the UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement.[1]

On 23 October 2020 the Government and Japan signed the UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA).[2]

This reading list brings together a selection of statements from the UK Government and the other parties to these negotiations. It also includes material from Select Committees, press articles and other commentary.
