2017 Trade Prospects Index
With the UK’s decision to leave the European Union and the single market, it now finds itself with the unique opportunity to reshape its place in the global economy.
This report analyses the UK’s trading statistics of combined goods and services with its largest non-EU partners, and combines this with an original depth analysis of previous trading relationships.
The Trade Index Report contrasts the benefits gained from, and speed of concluding a trade deal with the potential stumbling blocks facing the UK while it seeks its non-EU trade deals. The report presents a list of nations that we believe the UK government should prioritise first when it embarks on negotiating its many trade deals.
South Korea, USA, Brazil, China, Australia, UAE, India, Japan, Singapore and Canada are all investigated, recommended and evaluated against their idiosyncratic contexts to assess feasibility.
