Somewhat to my surprise, the info-map shows that we currently use WTO rules with many of our major non-EU trading countries. USA, Russia, China, Aus, NZ.
But I don't understand why India not included in the WTO colouring. India is a member of the WTO and there is no EU deal with India.
Sadly (inexplicably) the info-map does not show which non-EU countries currently have special deals with the EU (such as canada) which we would lose if we left the EEA.

Yes indeed, but my point was more that it would have been useful to know which non-EU countries currently trade with us via an EU-negotiated agreement. In particular it would be useful to know what proportion of our exports currently go to such countries.
Interesting. So you think - presumably - the UK should open its doors to
imports from all duty and tarrif free. If it doesn't, it can be labelled
And oddly your other hero Trump seems to want to protect US industry too.

the largest countries on the list are:
Mexico, South Korea and Turkey, soon to be joined by Canada
All of the rest are relatively small insignificant countries, some not even
countries. One of the famed 47 states with which the EU has an agreement
which will be lost when we leave is RAF Akrotiri - quite who it is who
thinks we will stop trading there, I have no idea.
The point has been made, and it is worth making again, that by the time
the UK strikes a deal with te EU (10 years +) , it will have struck a
deal with all of the little nations the EU has a trade agreement with.
So they are pretty irrelevant.
The only thing that matters is trading with the EU protectionist zone
It is their only card, but it isnt a trump.
