UK: Regime may seek “temporary” customs union with EU

“Britain might seek to remain in a customs union with the European Union for a time to avoid border chaos after leaving the bloc, the government’s Brexit department said Tuesday. The Department for Exiting the European Union said there could be ‘a temporary customs union between the U.K. and the EU’ to help businesses make the transition to life outside the EU. And it said a future ‘customs partnership’ could eliminate the need for a border for goods traveling between Britain and the EU.” (08/15/17)
