    The Welsh Government made clear its goals and suggestions for the future partnership EU-UK. It disagrees with the tight negotiation timetable decided by the UK government and insists that a cliff edge in December 2020 must be avoided if a comprehensive agreement cannot be reached over the coming year. The text reads that the UK must prioritize a trade agreement with the EU over other countries. It also says some aspects must go beyond the Political Declaration agreed by the Prime Minister Johnson in October 2019:

    • agreeing to a broad level playing field, including alignment on environmental, social and labour market standards
    • dynamic alignment with EU rules and regulations necessary to ensure no new trade barriers come into force
    • participation in EU bodies and agencies such as the European Chemicals Agency to support dynamic alignment
