Kenya among 26 countries looking to secure trade deal with post-Brexit UK


Political blogger Guido Fawkes has published an article listing the 26 countries which have already signalled their intention to secure a post-Brexit deal with Britain.

The list shows countries which nations’ government officials or prominent business figures have declared a desire to secure a Britain free of European Union regulation and trade restrictions.

Out of the 10 largest economies in the world, just two (France and Italy) have not yet made moves for a deal.

Every continent on Earth is represented (with the exception Antarctica) with the following 26 countries listed as already having signalled their intentions:

  • Australia
  • Argentina
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Chile
  • China
  • Colombia
  • Ecuador
  • Germany
  • Ghana
  • Iceland
  • India
  • Ireland
  • Japan
  • Kenya
  • Korea
  • Mexico
  • New Zealand
  • Pakistan
  • Paraguay
  • Peru
  • Suriname
  • Switzerland
  • United States
  • Uruguay
  • Venezuela

The website claims the total GDP of all of these countries is nearly $50 trillion dollars, which equates to 67% of global GDP. This is a much bigger potential market than the EU whose GDP of $16 trillion which equates to just 22%.
