Brexit Explained

The WTO currently has 164 members which between them are responsible for 95% of world trade. It is a negotiating forum for its members to create international trade rules, and an organisation to oversee how they put the rules into practice.
In 1993, the EU extended membership of the Single Market to three non-EU states: Norway, Lichtenstein and Iceland. It drafted an agreement – known as the European Economic Area (EEA) – that extended the Single Market to these countries
Article 218 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union sets out the EU’s rules for conducting negotiations with third parties. It applies to negotiations between the EU and one or more non-member states or international organisations.
