Hungarian Media Report on Brexit and the CANZUK Movement

A Google translated quotation:

The CANZUK Initiative aims to create an economic community between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, with the free movement of goods, capital and labor, but as a first step, at least to achieve free employment between the four countries. (Interestingly, Elizabeth II is the head of state for all four countries to date.) At first glance, the idea might seem anachronistic if it meant a resurrection of the British Empire, except that Australia and New Zealand are now more closely linked to the United States than to each other, with the exception of Australia and New Zealand. However, when you think about it, there are a number of practical factors behind the idea. It is the 21st Century’s travel and transportation conditions that make it much easier for citizens and goods from five culturally close countries to move between themselves than they were in the 19th or 20th Century.

Being a close ally of all four countries in the US can make it easier for them to cooperate with each other, while also reducing the overwhelming advantage of the US if the four smaller Anglo-Saxon countries coordinate with each other. Although, unlike the free trade negotiations between the United States and the United Kingdom, CANZUK still exists at the theoretical level, with Brexit all four countries become interested in it, and there is little reason for them not to take such a step. So far, Britain’s EU membership has been the main reason for not realizing the idea, as EU treaties would not have allowed the UK to grant such privileges to non-EU countries. Brexit, on the other hand, removes this obstacle, indeed, from here on out, Britain will become interested in making up for the loss of free employment for its citizens in Europe. According to a 2018 poll, 82% of New Zealand’s population, 76% of Canada’s population, 73% of Australia’s and 68% of the UK’s population would support free employment in the four countries.

We will reach out to the Commonwealth which now has some of the fastest growing economies in the world. It was fantastic at the recent Africa summit to see how many that wanted to turn that great family of nations into a free trade zone even if we have to begin with clumps and groups.

We will engage with old friends and partners Australia, New Zealand, Canada, on whom we deliberately turned our backs on the early 1970’s.

They report the notion of CANZUK, following the end of the Brexit drama, as very hot news in Britain. A Google translated segment of the article:

According to the latest news, the United Kingdom and Australia are likely to be the first to reach an agreement, and as early as Christmas 2020, a trade agreement including free movement of population will be signed.

As the first country to join hands with the United Kingdom after Brexit, Australia’s second largest source of investment at present is the United Kingdom, with investment in Australia reaching $ 574.8 billion in 2018.

Considering that there is a Trans-Tasman visa-free agreement between Australia and New Zealand, if the Anglo-Australian Free Trade Agreement is in place, the next one is likely to be New Zealand.

Coupled with Canada, which is eager to try, the four countries, called “British-Canada-Australia-New Zealand”, are connected together.
