The British Government has worked very closely with all the British Overseas Territories (OTs) to surface their concerns and interests in relation to EU Exit since the referendum. Given Saint Helena's association with the EU through the 2013 Overseas Association Decision (OAD), it currently benefits from non-reciprocal tariff-free quota-free access to the EU's goods market. In a no-deal scenario, Saint Helena may lose this preferential access.
We continue to support all the territories so that their businesses are prepared to trade with the EU, if necessary, as a non-EU associated territory. The UK Government has also made provisions in the Cross Border Taxation Act for all EU associated territories to retain tariff and quota-free access to the UK market.
We are committed to negotiating a good deal for the Overseas Territories as part of our negotiations with the EU on the future partnership.
