The Questions to Ask About Brexit



With Brexit being kicked down the road for two years, does not mean you can be complacent. The Irish Export Association just published an article that Irish SMEs are even more dependent on UK export since Brexit was announced. More here

Around the time of UK's EU referendum in June 2016, just under a third of exporters said they sold a quarter of their produce into the UK market. That's now risen to 44pc of exporters. And 41pc say they plan to increase UK sales further in the next six months.

Go figure.

in the Mid-West”. Brexit we expect will be part of that conversation.

  • Jane Dempsey, Assistant Principal, Brexit Unit, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine

Panel discussion

The event is chaired by Patrick Daly, IEA Supply Chain Series Chair & Managing Director, Alba Consulting Group. Part of the event will be a panel discussion with an opportunity to interact with the speakers.

The question to ask

The question I would ask is which other countries we should focus on for our export. For example Switzerland. Read more here.
