European Commission proposes one-year fishing deal if no U.K. trade pact reached

/ / News

The European Commission on Thursday proposed contingency measures if no trade deal between the U.K. and European Union is agreed, including a one-year reciprocal fisheries agreement. The measures also include a six-month extension of basic air connectivity and aviation safety, as well as a six-month extension for road connections. “Negotiations are still ongoing. However, given that the end of the transition is very near, there is no guarantee that if and when an agreement is found, it can enter into force on time,” said European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
