Brexit is a tough road for the UK. However, after 10 months of complicated negotiations, he and the European Union may be able to agree on the details of their future trade relationship as early as Wednesday evening, December 23. “The possibility of a provisional trade deal between Britain and the European Union is increasingly looming. Throughout the day, contacts have multiplied between Boris Johnson and the President of the European Commission”, explains France Télévisions journalist Camille Guttin, live from Brussels (Belgium).

The main point which is hotly debated is that of fishing but a compromise is in the process of being found. “European Union fishermen could gain access to UK waters if they reduce their fishing quotas. It would be a big step forward“, notes the journalist. This agreement will however remain provisional. It will enter into force on January 1, 2021 but will still have to be ratified by the European Parliament, later, officially. The hypothesis of a no-deal thus seems to be moving away small little by little.
