Liechtenstein Highlights - Brexit, EFTA and EEA

Liechtenstein Highlights - Brexit, EFTA and EEA


Under the auspices of H.S.H. Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein, Acting Head of State.

Brexit means British exit. The term describes the planned withdrawal of
the United Kingdom from the European Union. Two forms of Brexit can be
distinguished: Soft Brexit means that the UK will stay in the Single
Market; Hard (or Clean) Brexit means that it will also leave the Single
Market. If the UK goes for Hard Brexit, it will on the one hand bank on
regulatory competition and look for allies outside of Europe. At the
same time, it will try to conclude a bespoke free trade agreement with
the EU for goods and services. If the UK aims at Soft Brexit, the
Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) may come into focus. The
EEA Agreement provides citizens and economic operators with access to
the Single Market. However, since the common trade policy is not part of
the agreement, the EFTA States retain their sovereignty to conclude
free trade agreements with third countries. Most importantly, the EFTA
countries Contracting Parties to the EEA Agreement have their own
surveillance authority (ESA) and their own court (the EFTA Court).
