    The U.K. will join Canada in leading a new free-trade alliance: Britain’s trade chief | Financial Post

    Sep 18, 2018

    “For the first time in four decades, the U.K. will be able to pursue an independent trade policy, allowing us to renew and strengthen our relationship with key allies like Canada. ...”

    These firms are part of a transatlantic network of high-tech trade and investment that will help to secure jobs and prosperity for the future. To thrive, they will need a strong alliance for free trade between what are the world’s fifth- and tenth-largest economies. This builds on our bonds of friendship, our shared values as well as the unprecedented co-operation between our two governments, highlighted by the agreement last September between our countries’ prime ministers, Theresa May and Justin Trudeau, for a seamless transition to a new bilateral trading agreement after the U.K. exits the European Union.

    Britain's first deal after Brexit will be a multi-country arrangement with Asia-Pacific nations such as Japan, Mexico, Australia and Canada

    “It happened,” in the laconic words of the coroner’s inquest, “that a certain Giano Imperiale of Genoa lay slain.” The year of his visit to London was 1379, and he had been involved in a street scuffle on St. Nicholas Acton Lane. One summer evening, while Giano was sitting outside his dwelling, a passerby had trod “unwittingly” on his feet, leading to an argument, drawn swords, and Giano’s death. The killer and a confederate were indicted for the crime, but an all-Londoner jury ruled it an accidental homicide.

    The matter was not, however, so easily swept under the rug. Giano, it developed, was no casual visitor. He had been admitted to England under letters of safe conduct issued by the king, who was seeking an innovative trading relationship with the Genoese. Giano and representatives of the king had already drafted an agreement allowing Genoese ships to skip the crowded Port of London, discharging and receiving cargo at the deepwater Port of Southampton instead. The product in question was English wool, a commodity so important that, at that historical moment, it accounted for a full third of the total revenue of the land. London merchants and traders had been thriving on duties and profits reaped from their absolute control of the wool trade, and the new arrangement sought by Giano would have blown their monopoly sky-high.
