Vietnam, Britain conclude free trade agreement negotiations


HANOI (Reuters): Britain and Vietnam said on Friday (Dec 11) that they had concluded talks to negotiate a new free trade agreement, just weeks before Britain completes its transition out of the European Union on Dec 31.

"99 per cent of tariffs between the two countries will be eliminated by the time of full implementation," the British Embassy in Hanoi said in a statement.

It was not immediately clear when the final deal, which will for Britain replace the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), would be signed.
