24 Dec EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement
Posted at 19:30h in News and Press Releases 0 Comments
On 24 December 2020 EU Commission and UK have reached an Agreement on cooperation.
For transport, the agreement provides for continued and sustainable air, road, rail and maritime connectivity, though market access falls below what the Single Market offers. It includes provisions to ensure that competition between EU and UK operators takes place on a level playing field, so that passenger rights, workers’ rights and transport safety are not undermined.
It will have to be approved by the EU Council and Parliament, but in light of exceptional circumstances, the Commission proposes to apply the Agreement on a provisional basis, for a limited period of time until 28 February 2021.
