Our work with government continues to ensure the aluminium sector and our members are engaged with BEIS and the Brexit trade negotiations. We recently submitted a position paper to our contacts at the UK Government: ALFED UK/EU Trade Negotiations Position Paper.
The Brexit negotiations are still taking place during the coronavirus outbreak. David Frost and Michel Barnier met via videoconference last week, where they agreed new dates for the next few negotiating rounds, all of which will take place via video conference.
The new agreed dates are as follows, with all rounds lasting a full week:
- w/c 20 April
- w/c 11 May
- w/c 1 June
Agendas for these rounds will also be published online in due course.
We will keep ALFED members updated on the progress with Brexit.
