Four Models for Britain’s Future
① Norway has access to most of the EU’s single market. But its agreement requires customs checks, contributions to the EU budget, and the free movement of people from EU countries—which Brits have said they don’t want.
② Switzerland’s arrangement with the EU is similar to Norway’s but without equal access to the EU’s single market. It’s in the Schengen Area, which allows for borderfree travel even of people not from EU countries.
③ Turkey isn’t technically a member of the EU Customs Union. It has a separate deal with the EU allowing for tariff-free trade of most goods. Turks can’t travel freely in the EU and have no say on its laws and regulations.
④ Canada is in the final stages of a free-trade treaty with the EU that keeps tariffs on some manufactured goods and keeps quotas on some Canadian farm exports.
