Headline: New agreements between Switzerland and the United Kingdom come into force
With the end of the transition period after Brexit, the bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the EU lose their validity with regard to the United Kingdom (UK). A series of successor agreements that Switzerland negotiated with the UK as part of its “Mind the gap” strategy (including “Mind the gap Plus”) will apply from January 1, 2021. The majority of the applicable rights and obligations between the two states are thus retained. The FDFA took note of the conclusion of a trade agreement between the EU and the UK and welcomed the fact that it was possible to avoid the UK leaving the country without a contract.
