Post Brexit Planning Workshop
Share |




Trade statistics show that the European Union is the destination for about half of all British goods exports. The trading links are bigger if we include the countries that the United Kingdom trades freely with because of the free trade agreement with the European Union. The task to reach a new trade agreement with the European Union following the "Brexit "vote will be complex.

This one day workshop will look at the impact of the "Brexit" on your existing exports and imports immediately and longer term and where to go from here to spread your risks.
