Trade agreements have always taken a very substantial amount of time to negotiate, agree and ratify, e.g. 7 years for CETA between EU and Canada. This Paper highlights the exceptional challenge in negotiating new trading arrangements between the EU and UK within 2 years but also indicates that there will likely be a significant period after the conclusion of the new EU/UK deal when no trade agreements will be in place with non-EU states.
