Trade Partnerships

Through its membership of the EU, the UK is currently party to just over 80 trade agreements (31 in force, and over 50 partly in place).  Outside the EU Customs Union, the UK will be free to negotiate its own trade arrangements with any country or trading bloc, including the EU.  But which to pursue first?  And how will the complex inter-relationships and sequencing of negotiations affect the overall results?
