The United Kingdom and New Zealand have signed a mutual recognition agreement, where the UK has pledged trade continuity following Brexit. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern met with her counterpart Theresa May at Number 10 Downing Street a few hours ago, before Ms May put her Plan B for Brexit in front of the British Parliament. After the meeting Jacinda Ardern told reporters in London the agreement means New Zealand businesses can have confidence that they will be no worse off after Brexit.
