Post the EU council declarations in October that BREXIT negotiations have not had the appropriate progress (quote: “sufficient progress,”), there is a definite kick start of the talks coming up, specifically at the December’s EU council summit.
Now trade is one thing but and number of unresolved issues is still pending. Starting from Article 50 talks, rights of EU citizens, Irish border issues etc etc etc. Notably, we still have not talked about the money issue on regards to continued payments.
At this point, when trade is coming up into discussion speed and tranquility should govern the talks. Corporations usually fall into contingency plans on these specific scenarios, which in turn would somehow be a rollercoaster of unresolved issues.
On the positive side though, there is a general good feeling and engagement of both sides to end these talks as soon as possible with the best possible outcome.
