"'Perfectly manageable' for UK to trade with EU under WTO rules"

'No EU-UK deal? It is not the end of the world', says WTO chief
Nice headline but what Roberto Azevedo actually said was;
Quote:
Britain's EU membership gave it preferential trading terms not only with the other 27 member states, but also the 58 countries with which the bloc had FTAs.
Quote:
Without a deal, bilateral trade would likely be subject to higher WTO tariffs as well as other barriers such as increased red tape.
Ahead of Britain's EU referendum in June 2016, Azevedo warned that exporters risked billions of pounds (dollars, euros) in extra customs duties each year after Brexit.
