Peru, Ecuador and Colombia sign trade deal with UK ahead of Brexit
LIMA (Reuters) - Peru, Ecuador and Colombia signed a new trade deal with Britain on Wednesday ahead of the countryâ€™s planned departure from the European Union, Peruâ€™s trade and tourism ministry said.
The deal, which was signed by representatives of the four countries in Ecuadorâ€™s capital Quito, will keep tariff preferences for the South American countries in place once Britain leaves the EU, the ministry said in a statement.
The three countries already have an existing trade agreement with the EU.
