BRASILIA (Reuters) – Britain will seek to deepen ties with trading partners around the world, including Brazil, as it prepares to leave the European Union by March 2019, chancellor of the exchequer Phillip Hammond said on Monday during a visit to Brasilia. Hammond said the British departure from the EU will not be postponed or delayed. “We will seek to build up our trade in both directions with those partners over the coming years, as we leave the EU, and once again have the ability to conclude bilateral trade deals with friends and allies around the world,” Hammond said at a news conference.
