With just over a month to go until the crucial European Council summit on 28-29 June 2018, progress in the Brexit negotiations remains elusive. The UK Government is divided over the nature of its post-withdrawal customs relationship with the EU, but a new proposal has emerged that would see the UK as a whole remain in the EU Customs Union for an unspecified period of time after the end of the transitional period in December 2020.

Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website.
