Brexit: International Trade and Productivity 

If the UK does not secure post-Brexit trade agreements with the EU and Non-EU countries after the transition period is over, then after this period, the UK will face higher overall trade costs due to higher tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade between the UK and both the EU and Non-EU countries. These higher barriers to trade would lead to a fall in the UK productivity growth, which since the Financial Crisis of 2008 has been notoriously slow.
