The figure below shows the percentage of total UK trade with EU FTA partners. Those countries with whom the EU has implemented trade agreements or concluded trade negotiations represented, in 2017, 17 % of total UK trade and 35 % of the UK’s trade with extra-EU countries. So Brexit will not only affect the 50 % of UK trade with EU partners but also the additional 17 % of UK trade with EU FTA partners.
