Just an update regarding the Brexit
The United Kingdom wants to leave the European Union on 31 January 2020. The United Kingdom and the European Union reached an agreement on 17 October 2019 on the conditions for departure from the EU and a transitional period.
With the election victory of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on 12 December, the approval of the agreement by the British parliament seems likely. On 9 January the British House of Commons approved the agreement by a large majority. In the coming weeks the British High House will deal with the agreement. Once the agreement has been approved by the entire British Parliament, the European Parliament will also vote on it at the end of January.
Transitional phase upon approval
If the British Parliament and the European Parliament agree to the Brexit agreement, the UK will leave the EU on 31 January 2020. The Brexit is thus a fact. From that moment on, a transition phase will start until 31 December 2020. During this period, all EU rules and laws for the UK remain in force. Virtually nothing changes for citizens and businesses. They then have more time to prepare for the new agreements that the EU and the UK will make about their future relationship after December 31, 2020.
