Britons Sign Post-Brexit Fishing Agreement With Norway
Norway and Great Britain have reached an agreement on fisheries ahead of Brexit. The Norwegian government reports this on Wednesday.
The agreement will go in into force on January 1 and will cover control measures, permits and research, and will facilitate the reciprocal exchange of quotas and access to each other’s waters.
Though Norway is not an adherent of the EU, it is integrated into the common European market and has to negotiate post-Brexit trade relations with the United Kingdom.
In October last year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the EU reached an agreement on the standings of the British exit from the EU that took place at the beginning of this year.
London and Brussels are now wearisome to settle on a trade deal. Fishing and fair competition, among other things, are among the difficulties in the negotiations.
The deal between Norway and Great Britain will be signed in London on Wednesday.
