LONDON (Reuters) – The UK and Japan have reached consensus on the key elements of a post-Brexit bilateral trade deal that the two countries are expected to conclude later this month, UK Trade Secretary Liz Truss said Friday.
"The negotiations have been positive and productive, and we have reached a consensus on the key elements of an agreement, including ambitious provisions in areas such as digital, data and financial services that go well beyond the EU-Japan agreement," said Truss in a statement.
