The United Kingdom left the EU on 31 January 2020.
EFTA (European Free Trade Association) was formed as
an alternative trading bloc for
European states that had not joined the EEC, either because they were not
willing to or they were not able to.
The EFTA member countries are: Austria, Denmark, Norway, Portugal,
Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
The main difference between EFTA and the EU is that
EFTA members are not part of the EU Customs Union.
