GERMANY has joined the United States and Canada in reaching out to Britain to stress the importance of trade deals with the UK outside of the European Union (EU).


From the USA:



President Obama said: "The people of the United Kingdom have spoken, and we respect their decision.

"The special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom is enduring, and the United Kingdom's membership in Nato remains a vital cornerstone of US foreign, security and economic policy.

"So too is our relationship with the European Union, which has done so much to promote stability, stimulate economic growth, and foster the spread of democratic values and ideals across the continent and beyond.

"The United Kingdom and the European Union will remain indispensable partners of the United States even as they begin negotiating their ongoing relationship to ensure continued stability, security and prosperity for Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the world."


From Canada



Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed the sentiment from President Obama in a statement yesterday. He said: "The
UK and the EU are important strategic partners for Canada with whom we enjoy deep historical ties and common values. "We will continue to build relations with both parties as they forge a new relationship. "Canada's connections to our partners around the world are among its greatest assets, and these relationships contribute greatly to the prosperity of all Canadians."


And here is a surprise...... Germany



Even Euro giant Germany said in a government paper it recommended making the UK an "associated partner country" following Brexit.


Even the WTO has some input.


WTO director-general Roberto Azevedo said: "The WTO stands ready to work with the UK and the EU to assist them in any way we can."


Express

Looks like it wont be economic collapse.

My bet is Australia and China will be making there moves too.

Now, what to do with all of that economic fear mongering? As I see it, the Brits set an example of what we should all be doing, and that is kicking the capitalist out of our every day lives.

This was predictable...

We're a tiny superpower.

These countries would be committing suicide not trading with us.
Not economically, but in other aspects.
It's just what should be done for those who have spilled blood in others wars and didn't complain about it.



We're Out!!!

They just don't want to be stuck between a rock and a hard place. UK is now in uncharted waters, no one wants to take any sides at this point.

This linguistic ambiguity in terms of trade talks is expected.
I don't think anyone thought of the aftermath. The plan stopped at 'Exit'. Uk leaders need to sort out a lot in little time.
They need to make sure the UK remains 'the UK' before they lay out new trade agreements.

Of course they want special trade deals. The problem is the UK now is negotiating from a much weaker position and everybody else is going to get more than they would have if they had to deal with the entire EU and the UK will have to take less. It is not malicious, it is simply the way these things work.

How so? As an American, I can't remember the last time I saw a label that said "Made in the UK".

What do you have that we need?

Again when the USA hands sovereignty and border controls over to another country you will have a point.

Yes we will have less bargaining powers but Freedom inst free. Least we may pay a slight medium term finical penalty rather than in blood that other nations have had to for there sovereignty and freedom. We got a bargain.

No reason that in 10 years time we cant be another Australia, New Zealand or Japan.

Well of course.

The cast walls of onerous regulations and convoluted trade deal fostered by the EU won't be in the way anymore.

EU rules forbade "Made in GB" or similar tags.

I think the "associated partner" thing that Germany is talking about has to do with trying to get the UK to still pay the EU a bit while tgey negotiate out.

In the article I read, Germany was worried because now they have to pay up to 2b more to make up for UK leaving.

When you make your trade deal with the EU and you will make it your borders will be open, free movement is the price for access to the single market. The Swiss and Norway know this, they have a much higher level of EU immigration than the UK. The key to the UK economic power has been as the access point to Europe. That will no longer be the case. Yet you will still be tied to by EU regulations and who knows what regulation the US and China will put on trade deals that the UK will have choice but to take. So when the UK signs that Free Movement of Persons Agreement you just remember that you are right back in the same position you were, just poorer and missing half your nation.

This article explains Germany's position a little better and the reason for their use of the phrase "associated partner country".

they have a large consumer market that we can sell too. Plus niche agri-food products for our markets as well.

Props to our cousins across the pond first for having the intelligence and ability to give a damn about the future of their country, and the courage to follow through. You guys will in fact be better off I think. Yall ran the world for centuries before passing us the torch in WW2. There is no goal the people of Britain cannot achieve when yall participate together!

America stands at your side wherever you choose to go next!
