Boris Johnson’s huge post-Brexit plan as PM vows Britain will become ‘global trailblazer’
BRITAIN will become a “global trailblazer” after we finally leave the European Union on Friday, says Boris Johnson.
Brexit deadline is ‘powerful tool’ for Johnson says expert
Boris Johnson wants the country to become “Great again”, heal its past divisions and “look ahead with confidence” to life as an independent nation after Brexit. It came as the US treasury secretary confirmed that America will “dedicate a lot of resources” to securing a trade deal between the two countries, vowing that, after Brexit, Britain would be “top of the list”. The Prime Minister is now focusing on reaching out to the world beyond Europe with the relaunch of the “Great” ready-to-trade campaign which is designed to “unleash the UK’s potential”.
In a sign that relying on the European Union is firmly in the past, advertising will centre on 13 non-EU countries. Rolling out on February 1, there will be a digital marketing strategy aimed at priority markets in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China (including Hong Kong), India, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the UAE and the USA.
It follows revelations that talks on an EU trade deal will not be prioritised and that parallel discussions for lucrative trade deals will happen with the USA, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
Mr Johnson said: “Friday marks an important moment in the history of our United Kingdom. No matter how you voted in 2016, it is time to look ahead with confidence to the global, trail-blazing country we will become over the next decade and heal past divisions. That is what I will be doing on January 31 and I urge everyone across the UK to do the same.”
US treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin had a breakfast meeting with Chancellor Sajid Javid yesterday and said: “We’ve said that the goal is trying to get [a trade agreement] done this year and from a US standpoint we are prepared to dedicate a lot of resources. The UK and US have very similar economies with and I think that this will be a very important relationship.

“This is going back to the President during the election campaign when he said, post-Brexit, ‘they’ll be at the top of the list’.”
The wave of optimism about the future comes as previous critics of Brexit have finally admitted they were wrong and that Britain is well on course to succeed. In spring 2016, the International Monetary Fund – headed by the pro-EU Christine Legarde – forecast that Brexit would lead to a recession.
But the IMF is now forecasting that Britain’s growth will actually be stronger than the Eurozone.
Meanwhile, a PwC survey of chief executives revealed that, when it comes to being an attractive place for business to relocate, Britain is riding high and back to the same level it was in 2015.
