Relations with the United Kingdom
The Faroe Islands and the United Kingdom are close neighbours with a shared maritime boundary and a long history of political, economic and cultural cooperation.
As a consequence of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, the Faroe Islands and the UK have concluded a bilateral framework agreement on fisheries and a continuity free trade agreement. The Faroese Government is seeking to build further on these bilateral relations, pursuing a broader and more dynamic collaboration for future relations with the United Kingdom and its constituent countries.
The Representation of the Faroe Islands in London promotes and facilitates collaboration in all areas of mutual interest between the Faroe Islands and the United Kingdom.
The diplomatic representative of the Faroe Islands in London is also accredited to the Republic of Ireland, as well as being the Faroese Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization.
Information on practical aspects of Faroese-UK relations can be found on the Representation’s website, as well as by following the Representation on Facebook: @faroesinlondon and Twitter: @FaroesinLondon
