Brexit pulse alerts: respond to the business impacts of Brexit

Top Brexit impacts
The agreement provides certainty to businesses that trade between the UK and Cameroon will continue on largely the same terms as secured in the EU-Central Africa Economic Partnership Agreement.
Total trade with Cameroon amounted to £200 million in 2019, which included imports to the UK of fruit, nuts and wood products.
The UK government said the deal enables businesses to trade “without any additional barriers or tariffs, and provides a foundation to extend our trading relationship in future.”
A memorandum of understanding has been signed with Cameroon alongside the trade agreement to enable the terms of the agreement to come into effect immediately.
Actions for business
Businesses trading within the UK-Cameroon corridor will be able to benefit from the terms of the continuity agreement immediately and plan for the future with greater certainty.
