Staying close to the EU

Initially conceived as a peace project, the EU has transformed into the largest and most successful trading block in the world.

Around 45% of the UK’s exports, and 55% of imports, are with our trading partners in the European Union. Key to this is the single market and customs union, guaranteeing free and frictionless trade between over 500 million people. On top of that, free movement means we, and our children, can travel, work, marry and retire in any country in Europe. Economies of scale mean we share the bureaucracy of government, making shared projects much cheaper.
