UK and Turkiye launch talks on a new free trade deal 

LONDON: The UK and Turkiye will formally launch negotiations on a new Free Trade Agreement on Thursday with a view to including services as well as goods in a new deal. 

Britain already has an FTA with Turkiye, which was rolled over when Britain left the EU, but a review by both sides last year concluded there was room for improvement under a new deal. 

“We already have a thriving trade relationship that will only get stronger with a new, modernised trade deal,” Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch said in a statement.
