The EU has about forty free trade agreements covering about 70 countries around the world. Some of these agreements apply mainly to tariff reductions on goods. Some agreements are comprehensive. They are used to establish rules and facilitate trade in a number of areas covering different sectors, including trade in goods, trade in services, government procurement or intellectual property protection. Other important concessions in the EU-Japan agreement are improved access to pork, processed pork, cheese and alcoholic beverages, all of which are important opportunities for UK exporters in the future. The AHDB will carry out in the coming days and weeks additional and more detailed analyses on the trade agreement between Great Britain and Japan.
