The Business of Brexit

Planning for the Unknown Nearly a year after the UK triggered the process for leaving the EU, negotiations have only barely begun to move on to the second phase of negotiations, which will see discussions move on from purely withdrawal issues relating to areas like citizens rights and money, to talks about the future relationship. These will encompass issues like trade and customs arrangements as well as what system would replace the free movement of people that currently exists between Britain and Europe. The UK and EU will also soon begin to sketch out a framework for what cooperation could look like across a host of areas that are of significant importance to businesses in Wales and the Welsh economy – such as whether the UK will continue to participate in regional funding and collaboration schemes, research and innovation programmes, and Europe’s common aviation area.

The risk of no-deal still remains a real possibility, and indeed what some businesses are using as their baseline scenario for planning and preparation. But even if both sides manage to avert this scenario, huge questions remain about what a new free trade arrangement would mean for companies trading both domestically and cross-border. At this month’s First Wednesday Club the IoD’s Head of Europe and Trade Policy Allie Renison will provide an update on negotiations as well as advice on how businesses should start preparing for all eventualities. Allie is closely engaged with all parts of Government in mapping out Brexit priorities on behalf of IoD members, and is uniquely placed to shed what light is available at this stage on how talks are going as well as what the IoD is doing to influence and plan for the UK’s exit from the EU.
