These relations are governed in different ways: through formal and informal cooperation and cooperation; Dialogues Memorands of communication; Regulatory rules and, in some cases, through international agreements and treaties. The Ankara agreement and customs union with Turkey will continue during the 2020 Brexit transition period and the two countries will work on signing a bilateral free trade agreement that is expected to enter into force from 1 January 2021, British Ambassador to Ankara Sir Dominick Chilcott said on 7 February. During the transition period, the Uk still plans to conclude new agreements with other countries, including the European Union. Indeed, some of these agreements have already come into force. We believe that it would not be wrong to think that the agreements signed between the European Union and Turkey (such as the Ankara Agreement) will expire as soon as the transition period has been concluded, with regard to the UK`s position as a party to the agreement. Yalcin said that after the transition period, the UK should introduce a new one-time immigration system that would encourage talented and skilled migrants to enter the country from early 2021, and “our citizens will be able to apply for visas under the requirements of the new system.” The agreement – officially known as the European Community Association Agreement – allows Turkish nationals to circumvent all national visa rules and set up their own business in the UK. Some critics believe that the “right to free movement” will end after the transition period. Depending on the length of the negotiations, this could be a real consequence, which will come into force in January 2021. In addition, it seems that the British government wants to set up a point-based immigration system, modelled on Australia, to manage the immigration movement to Britain.
In order to identify relevant agreements, we have worked with international partners to understand which mutually beneficial agreements are affected by the withdrawal. The government has worked with international partners to conclude successor agreements or to take steps to adhere to multilateral agreements to ensure continuity, create security and avoid disruption to businesses and citizens. These succession schemes would come into force after leaving the EU, on the first day or shortly after in a non-agreement scenario or after the end of an implementation period, if agreed. In the conduct of this work, we have been open and transparent towards the EU and we will continue to do so, in line with our obligations as a Member State. Membership of the UK is covered by a large number of EU international agreements. These international agreements include political, security, economic and other forms of cooperation and cooperation with more than 100 third countries and cover a number of sectors such as aeronautics, trade, nuclear industry, the environment, fisheries and political agreements. The government also looked at the devolved administration (DAs) on the general approach to continuity policy, as well as specific agreements on decentralized competences. Some departments have worked with DAs to ensure that they are involved in this process and have supported implementation planning and availability.
The dependencies of the British crown and the overseas territories have relations with the EU. These relationships mean that crown dependencies and overseas territories are part of the EU for specific purposes and benefit from some of its international agreements.
