edited November 18 in Other Political Debate

Asked about progress on negotiations between the EU and UK on their future relationship. Executive Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis said the negotiations were intensifying with a final push being made to reach an agreement. 

Chief negotiator Michel Barnier updated European commissioners at their meeting today (18 November). Dombrovskis said there were still important elements to be resolved.

Dombrovskis said that the European Union had seen many deadlines come and go, but added that there is one deadline which was not moveable, 1 January 2021, when the transition period ends. 

He added that the European Commission would continue to work intensively towards the goal of reaching an agreement with the UK.

With @Europarl_EN & all Member States, we remain determined, patient, respectful.

We want our future cooperation to be open but fair in all areas.
