In the Government’s view the end of the transition period with the European Union provides the UK with the opportunity to design a future border that will deliver maximum benefit to the UK: a border that is more user-centric and streamlined than before, that helps businesses take advantage of new trading relationships around the world, whilst maintaining high-levels of security to protect the public, the environment and public health.
Recently the Government published a public consultation on GOV.UK, inviting businesses and industry to share ideas and evidence to help develop a 2025 UK Border Strategy. Their goal is for this strategy to set out how the UK border will be transformed into the world’s ‘most effective and efficient’ by 2025. Input and expertise from businesses and industry will ensure that the future border is designed with the user in mind and in a way which Government can deliver in partnership with business.
This consultation follows the publication of the Border Operating Model (see above). The link to the document is here
