UK Signs Free Trade Deal with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein



Barney Cotton | Business Leader

Ministers from the three countries came to London this month to sign the agreement with United Kingdom Minister for International Trade Ranil Jayawardena.

It is the most advanced trade deal that Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein have ever signed, with new provisions in digital trade, mobile roaming, and business travel. It will slash tariffs and offer new duty-free quotas on exports of high-quality British food and farm products and support jobs in every corner of our country.

The agreement maintains existing access to duty-free quotas for key British exports like cheese, while offering tariff reductions and quotas on pork, poultry and other goods. The agreement also recognises the protected status of certain United Kingdom wines and spirits, meaning consumers in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein can continue to enjoy our iconic products, like Scotch Whisky, with the confidence they are high quality and the real deal.
