The UK and three Andean countries signed the UK-Andean Countries Trade Agreement on 15 May 2019, in Quito, Ecuador, ensuring continuity for UK-Andean trade. The agreement carries forward the trade and sustainable development provisions from the EU-Andean agreement. More information about the continuity agreement can be found on the GOV.UK website:
