The UK Chamber of Shipping has given its reaction following news that EU and UK negotiators have agreed a new Brexit deal.

The agreement, announced this morning (Thursday) ahead of an EU leaders’ summit, follows weeks of inconclusive talks.

The UK Chamber of Shipping statement said: “We broadly welcome the agreement reached by the European Union and UK Government. This deal provides the basis for a negotiated settlement with a transition period, something we have long called for.

“We recognise that much still needs to be agreed though as part of any future trade deal. We will continue to work closely with the UK Government, and the EU, to ensure our world class shipping industry can continue to trade freely with our European partners.”
