In general, most of what we think might be different in everyday life near the border after independence, is in fact something we are already doing. We already have the vast majority of agreements in place, to ensure that our day to day lives carry on easily.

Whether as a trading post, a business hub or a tourist attraction, our shared, international border has a very positive future. All that remains, is for us to take up the opportunities it will bring.
