Landmark trade pact worth £10bn | Politics | News – UK



In Cape Town, Mrs May confirmed the UK will be ready to carry on the EU’s free trade agreement with six nations after Brexit.

Seen as a model for new trade relationships around the world, it will include Mozambique plus the Southern African Customs Union which comprises Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland, now known as Eswatini.

Those countries will then have the same access to the UK’s markets as they now do to EU markets.

It is the most advanced statement of progress yet of around 40 existing EU trade agreements the UK is aiming to continue.

And Mrs May said tomorrow she will sign a deal to send back huge sums of money illegally removed from Kenya.

The money was allegedly siphoned out of Kenya by corruption and crime and concealed in UK banks.
