Zoom Interactive Event: Brexit Update
27 October 2020
12:00 - 1:00pm BST
The UK left the EU politically on 31 January but it doesn’t leave economically until 31 December. We are in the middle of a phoney war where Brexit has happened but little of the impact on business has yet been felt. With or without a trade deal, significant changes are coming. The UK will leave the Single Market and Customs Union, which means border checks and increased import and export formalities. Today’s friction-free supply chains will be a thing of the past. What sort of future relationship might we expect with the EU and what are the short and long-term impacts likely to be? Even if your organisation is not directly involved in EU trade, the economic impacts of Brexit will affect you. To give us real insight, rather than just opinion, we will hear from a number of speakers with deep expertise in the workings of international trade. Dmitry himself is a former Australian government trade negotiator and now visiting professor at Strathclyde University.
