Dec 14, 2020


The Minister for External Relations, Senator Ian Gorst, has welcomed a joint announcement from the United Kingdom and European Union, stating that they will continue post-Brexit trade negotiations over the coming days, in order to reach an agreement before the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020.

Senator Gorst commented:

“I am pleased that the UK Prime Minister and EU Commission President have agreed to continue talks in an ongoing effort to reach an agreement.

“In Jersey, we have been preparing for all possible outcomes from these negotiations since the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016 and are continuing to do so. We remain committed to working closely with the UK Government, and our Crown Dependency colleagues, to ensure our interests continue to be understood and fully represented in these final stages of the negotiations.

“Our engagement in the negotiations will continue, through the UK, as we seek to achieve our clear objectives and conclude an agreement that meets the interests of Jersey residents and Island businesses.”
