Brexit: It's Official! UK Leaves The European Union
The departure concludes the three years of fractious debates over whether the country should really leave the bloc, the terms and conditions of its withdrawal, the kind of relationship it should develop with Europe. The UK will have to renegotiate treaties and trade agreements with all nations once it leaves the EU. India may benefit as this may provide greater access to British markets particularly for software engineers and services, etc.
Both celebrations and anti-Brexit protests marked the historic moment, for which a countdown was projected onto the front of 10 Downing Street, the UK PM’s official residence. Prime Minister Bris Johnson addressing the nation, said: “This is not an end but a beginning. This is the moment when the dawn breaks and the curtain goes up on a new act.”
Tonight we have left the EU - an extraordinary turning point in the life of this country. Let us come together now to make the most of all the opportunities Brexit will bring - and let’s unleash the potential of the whole UK.— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) January 31, 2020
