The negotiations between the British government and the Commission on the relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union began yesterday afternoon in Brussels with a bilateral meeting between the lead negotiators, David Frost and Michel Barnier (see AGENDA EU - UK Future Relationship 1st Round of Negotiations 2 - 5 March 2020).  I have already discussed the parties negotiating positions in Future Relationship Negotiations: The EU sets out its Stall 26 Feb 2020 and The Future Relationship with the EU The UK’s Approach to Negotiations - An Introduction and Overview 27 Feb 2020). I am also monitoring the negotiations on my EU Trade Negotiations page.

The negotiations are continuing today and tomorrow with negotiations between working parties on the following topics:
  1. Trade in goods
  2. Trade in services and investment and other issues
  3. Level playing field for open and fair competition
  4. Transport
  5. Energy and civil nuclear cooperation
  6. Fisheries
  7. Mobility and social security coordination
  8. Law enforcement and judicial cooperation in criminal matters
  9. Thematic cooperation
  10. Participation in Union programmes
  11. Horizontal arrangements and governance

Yesterday the British government also published the UK's approach to trade negotiations with the US in UK-USFree Trade Agreement which I shall discuss later.
