U.K. Mulling Turkey-Style Trade Pact After Brexit, Liam Fox Says

  • Trade Secretary Liam Fox: ‘We need to look at all the options’
  • Tories split on Brexit as Osborne warns over ‘protectionism’

The U.K. could try to stay in the European customs union after Brexit, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said, in a further sign that the British government is considering keeping some formal ties with the bloc.

Britain could model its post-Brexit relationship on Turkey’s trade deal with Europe, with some parts of its economy inside the tariff-sharing customs union, and others outside it, Fox told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show Sunday in London.
