Today, Friday, 31 January 2020 is the time for the United Kingdom –UK to leave the European Union, after a long time as a member. In a vote taken by the European parliament for a withdrawal agreement, the Brexit agreement put forward by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the majority supported the UK to withdraw from the region. Through the voting that has been done, the UK is no longer a member of the European Union as of February 1st.

Boris Johnson, Britain's elected prime minister replacing Theresa May stated after his inauguration that he would complete Brexit and unite the country. The conditions experienced by Britain today are the most challenging, since the one faced by the Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill during the second world war from 1940 - 1945. Boris Johnson is expected to be a unifying figure that prevents the United Kingdom from breaking up.

However, an interesting point is that the Brexit settlement target from October 1999 moved to January 2020. PM Johnson has been working hard to overcome the Brexit issue that has been promised.

After Brexit is implemented, the UK will enter a transition period until the end of the year. During this period, the UK will remain subject to European Union Law. Many people worry that during 2 years ahead, there will be economic uncertainty. Take for example in the trade sector, not only trade within the European Union, but also labor issues. Workers from European countries may be sent back to their countries. Meanwhile, those who will enter the UK will be subject to tighter restrictions. We hope that the United Kingdom is able to get through this transition without any significant turmoil.
