How much (%) of our trade is with the EU and how easy would it be to get new trade deals if we left the EU?


The EU is our biggest trading partner, with almost half (49%, Office for National Statistics) of UK trade being with the EU. By being in the EU, the UK and our businesses can trade freely with no tariffs and barriers.

If we voted to leave the EU, it would damage trade, and would harm UK businesses and growth, putting millions of jobs at risk.
