The Bailiwick's Further Participation in UK Free Trade Agreements

Share this page

Policy & Resources Committee - P.2022/71

The States are asked to decide:-

Whether, after consideration of the Policy Letter entitled "The Bailiwick's Further Participation in UK Free Trade Agreements" dated 19th August, 2022, they are of the opinion:-

1. To approve in principle that Guernsey should seek to participate in the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on Trans-Pacific Partnership('CPTPP') in its entirety (including provisions relating to trade in goods and to trade in services).

2. To authorise the Policy & Resources Committee (in respect of Guernsey and, subject to the necessary authorisations from Alderney and Sark, in respect of those islands) to finalise negotiations and agree to the terms of the Bailiwick's participation in the CPTPP (or the relevant provisions of the CPTPP), and to signal such agreement to HM Government in the UK. 

3. To agree that the policy baseline in respect of Guernsey's participation in non-goods elements of any UK Free Trade Agreement ('FTA') (or other trade arrangement) shall be participation which is the same as, or is consistent with, that approved by the States of Deliberation in respect of the CPTPP.

4. To endorse the process and approach outlined in this Policy Letter regarding Guernsey's (and the wider Bailiwick's) participation in UK FTAs (or other trade arrangements).

5. To authorise the Policy & Resources Committee (in respect of Guernsey and, subject to the necessary authorisations from Alderney and Sark, in respect of those islands) to negotiate and agree to the Bailiwick's participation in UK FTAs (or other trade arrangements), or relevant provisions of them, in accordance with any policy baselines approved by the States of Deliberation in relation to Guernsey, the States of Alderney in relation to Alderney and the Chief Pleas of Sark in relation to Sark and to signal such agreement to HM Government in the UK.

6. To agree that there shall be implemented such measures (including legislative measures) as the Policy & Resources Committee thinks fit for the purpose of ensuring that Guernsey may comply and remain in compliance with obligations that arise from participation in any UK FTA (or other trade arrangement).
