The certainty of brexit happening should be good for jobs and investment in the coming months
The UK is on the verge of a "new chapter" in its history, Boris Johnson has said, as he promised to "finish the job" by delivering Brexit within weeks.
In his new year message, the prime minister said he hoped the country would "move forward united" after it leaves the EU on 31 January.
He vowed to govern "for everyone", not just those who backed him at the polls.
A financial scheme linking investors in London and Shanghai, and launched last year, has reportedly been put on pause by Beijing in response to what is perceived as British meddling in the ongoing Hong Kong protests.
The Shanghai-London Stock Connect allows certain companies listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Shanghai Stock Exchange to issue depositary receipts on the other bourse. This offers international investors a backdoor access to the Chinese financial market, solidifying London's role as a financial capital, which was shaken by Brexit.

Boris Johnson will host the president of the European commission, Ursula Von Der Leyen, in Downing Street this week as he prepares to take Britain out of the EU at the end of this month, kicking off a race against time to secure a free trade deal.
The prime minister will use the comfortable majority he won at last month’s general election to press his Brexit bill through the House of Commons in three days when MPs return to Westminster on Tuesday.
He is expected to use his meeting with Von Der Leyen to underscore the government’s determination not to extend the transition period, which will mean the UK remains subject to many EU rules and structures until the end of December.
The main business for Parliament this week will be to consider the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill. Enacting the bill will make it possible for the UK to ratify the withdrawal agreement and thus to leave the EU later this month in an orderly fashion, with EU law set to continue in force in the UK throughout the implementation period. This is due to end on 31 December.
PASSING A LAW to prevent the extension of Brexit negotiations will not force the EU to rush into a deal, Tánaiste Simon Coveney has said in a BBC interview.
Coveney said the EU felt the end of 2020 deadline set by Boris Johnson was “ambitious, if not unrealistic”.

I live in hope we are seeing the tide turning in the UK plc against all this pandering to identity and minority bollocks. Trying to promote it appears politically inept and electorally calamitous.
Big Ben will remain hushed for Brexit due to financial and logistical issues, it is reported.
The issue was discussed at a meeting of the House of Commons Commission on Monday, however it was ultimately ruled out after it was revealed that it would cost £500,000 (€583,000) – up from the original estimate of £120,000 (€140,000).
The EU is insisting on a level playing field as it fears that the UK could undercut EU companies if they lower their standards on state aid, competition rules, the environment, labour law and taxation.
In recent days both the European Commission president Urusla von der Leyen and the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier have repeatedly warned that an FTA that offers the UK zero tariffs and zero quotas in accessing the single market must be accompanied by level playing field provisions.
In a related development member states were today told by the European Commission that British firms that have significant subsidiaries in Northern Ireland would be subject to EU state aid rules in the future, even though the Protocol in the Withdrawal Agreement only applies to Northern Ireland.
