The U.K. has agreed a free trade deal with Australia which it said marked a "new dawn" in its relationship with the country.
The deal — known as a Free Trade Agreement or FTA — means it will cost less for British businesses to sell products like cars, confectionery and Scotch whisky into Australia, the U.K. government said Tuesday.
"Today marks a new dawn in the UK's relationship with Australia, underpinned by our shared history and common values," U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement.
The deal was flagged late Monday when Australia's minister for trade said Johnson and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison had agreed the broad terms of the agreement over dinner in Downing Street in London.
