Withdrawal Agreement Text
The agreement also provides for a transitional period, which will last until 31 December 2020 and can be extended by mutual agreement. During the transitional period, EU legislation will continue to apply to the UK (including participation in the European Economic Area, the internal market and the customs union) and the UK will continue to contribute to the EU budget, but the UK will not be represented in EU decision-making bodies. The transition period will give businesses time to adapt to the new situation and the new era, so that the British and European governments can negotiate a new trade agreement between the EU and the UK.   RECONNAISSANT that, even if EU law applies to the United Kingdom during the transitional period, the specificities of the United Kingdom as a State, which has withdrawn from the Eu, will mean that it will be important for the United Kingdom to be able to prepare and create its own new international agreements, including in areas within the exclusive competence of the Union, unless these agreements come into force or apply during this period, unless the Union decides otherwise, only the details of the deliberations in the Committee of Public Hear or Parliament as a whole, on each stage of the report (reflection) and on any possible reflection.
