Britain is considering entering into a temporary customs union with the EU after the country leaves the Union in spring 2019. Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen estimates that this strengthens the hopes for a marriage of convenience between the two parties as it indicates that Britain wants to ensure that industrial trade to Europe continues uninterrupted. He says a customs union would definitely be a good thing for Finland.
