David Cameron, the Prime Minister, has welcomed progress towards a trade agreement between the EU and Japan. The negotiations, which have been on-going since 2013, are expected to be concluded by the end of the year.
Cameron said in a statement:
“This agreement underlines once again why we are stronger, safer and better off in a reformed EU. As Prime Minister Abe said when visiting the UK, Japan’s priority is negotiating with large trade blocs – not individual states in Europe. And this is something we hear time and again from foreign leaders.
Not only will UK households lose out to the tune of £4,300 a year if we vote to leave, but we will be turning our backs on global trade deals which underpin our security and prosperity”.
