On 23 June 2016 the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. On 29 March 2017 the British government formally notified the EU of its intention to leave. That started the 2-year clock under the Article 50 proceedings for agreeing the terms of separation. A separate negotiation will be conducted on the terms of the UK’s future relationship with the EU. The UK will also have to develop new policies towards and reach new agreements with other countries in the world.
