Tough choices await negotiators in upcoming Brexit talks. How much, if anything, is the U.K. willing to pay to settle its dues? How many immigrants are too many for British voters? How much free-trade can the U.K. still enjoy with the bloc afterward? Will the U.K. economy keep growing? U.K. and EU negotiators will monitor these key indicators over the next two years to help reach a compromise.
These charts illustrate some of the key data the negotiators will have in mind over the next two years.
