These negotiations between the UNITED Kingdom and the United States cannot be separated from those between the EU and the United Kingdom, as the requirements of the United States inevitably conflict with certain EU rules and rules. The result will be a painful compromise for the UK, which will have to choose between closer economic relations with the EU or with the US. Any existing EU agreement, which will not be rushed, will end on 31 December and future trade will take place on WTO terms until an agreement is reached. While free trade agreements are aimed at boosting trade, too many cheap imports could threaten a country`s producers, which could affect employment. In the 19th century, the United Kingdom was the most powerful trading nation in the world. The United States took its place in the world in the 20th century. If the 21st century is indeed the century of the Pacific, with China as the new dominant trading nation, can the combination of the world`s largest and fifth economies (the United States and the United Kingdom) create a sufficient geoeconomic ballast in the form of a free trade agreement between the United States and Britain to offset China`s rise? Would these two digital innovators, with a common culture and language, be able to “win the future” of technological innovations and shape the digital economy? Can they stimulate the digital future with democratic norms? No new trade agreement can begin until the transition is over. It is very likely that an agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States will also include provisions on public services. The government has explicitly stated its ambition to make the UK the world leader in trade in services. Similarly, during the TTIP negotiations (a proposed but unsuccessful trade agreement between the EU and the United States), the United States insisted that its companies have greater access to the UNITED Kingdom`s public service contracts and that a clause to strengthen and block the level of privatization in the public service be improved. This could include sensitive areas, including the provision of NHS services, as well as education, transport and prison services. Opening up to U.S. companies in this area can accelerate both deregulation and privatization and make it more difficult to cancel these changes.
Negotiators from the United Kingdom and the United States have set a broad framework for a comprehensive free trade agreement, but the upcoming U.S. presidential elections put pressure on the timing to reach a broad agreement (the U.S. Trade Promotion Agency, which allows Congress to accelerate any eventual deal, ends in July 2021). January 2021 could also be a particularly difficult time for the UK if its participation in european supply chains and standards is abruptly halted. But if both sides are able to overcome these obstacles, a free trade agreement between the United States and Britain could redirect the British economy to North American markets, which may justify further steps toward integration into the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement.
