Sam Lowe, a senior research fellow at the Centre for European Reform, said that the agreement should be “celebrated” but warned “it does not tell us anything about how goods will be treated when they cross the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland post-Brexit”. He added: “While the common travel area was always designated an issue to be negotiated and resolved by the UK and Ireland bilaterally, the external trade policy of the EU is very much not.”
