Department for Business and Trade (DBT) has launched a Call for Input (CFI) seeking views from businesses and the wider public on UK negotiation objectives for a new, modernised free trade agreement (FTA) with Turkey.

‘The UK and Turkey have an existing FTA which is based on outdated provisions from the 1990s negotiated when the UK was a member of the EU, and only covers goods. The UK Government is committed to negotiating a new, modernised FTA that is fit for the 21st century and covers sectors such as services, tech and digital’.

The CFI will close at 11:45pm on 5 January 2024. Should you wish to contribute please visit the website here.
