The UK and Poland have been close allies in the EU and we plan to be even closer allies once the UK has left. Poland is our leading trading partner in Central Europe with bilateral trade worth £15 billion last year. And UK exports to Poland doubling over the last decade.
I have updated the prime minister and her team on the work we are doing on Brexit. Since we last met in July, the UK has made significant progress to prepare for the negotiations. And I will trigger Article 50 before the end of March next year. I've also reiterated my plan to guarantee the rights of Poles and other Europeans currently living in the UK so long as the rights of British citizens living across the EU are guaranteed.
