With an agreement between Britain and the EU on the balance sheet, British companies trading with the continent have enough worries to worry about. The loss of trade with Turkey would be a second big blow to the teeth. Cavusoglu said Britain and Turkey already agreed to increase bilateral trade and added: “… in terms of volume, we have set a target of $20 billion [of bilateral trade]. Trade agreements also aim to eliminate quotas – limiting the amount of goods that can be traded. As the UK and Turkey move closer to a free trade agreement to increase bilateral trade to $15 billion by 2023, Metro is expanding our freight services to and from the region. This hole represents 5.5% of total trade in the UK and would be a second blow to the UK`s trade conditions with the rest of the world as it leaves the EU internal market and customs union. London and Ankara are involved in talks on a trade deal that can be quickly put in place if Britain and the EU reach an agreement. While the additional rules on compliance with the original burden cannot be completely repealed, the United Kingdom and Turkey could theoretically take steps to facilitate the qualification of exports for a future free trade agreement. They could, for example, simplify the qualification criteria for the original criteria that may originate and/or agree that inputs from EU-27 sources can be charged on local value-added thresholds, known as “cumulatives”. However, Turkey is bound by the terms of its customs union with the EU, which is to emulate the original criteria applied in the eu-UK free trade agreement in its own trade agreement with Britain. This means that flexibility such as the one proposed above can only exist if the EU approves it in its own negotiations with the UK. But a deal would not technically be a rollover, because Britain has withdrawn from the customs union.
In the meantime, exporters of both parties must demonstrate that a significant amount of their products were manufactured or manufactured on site in order to be subject to duty-free trade. The so-called rules of origin ensure that exports do not come from elsewhere.
