IPT Breakfast Meeting

Since 1973, the UK’s principal trading relationship has been with the European Union (EU). In 2016 this amounted to 44% of total UK exports in goods. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that inefficiencies in border clearance could add up to 10% to the value of traded goods. Exiting the EU will require the negotiation of a new customs framework and a new post-Brexit trading model, which will both have a significant impact on the UK’s future economic framework. This breakfast meeting will:

  • Discuss examples of trade models that the UK could follow post-Brexit
  • Consider the challenges presented by the introduction of tariffs and other trade barriers to UK-EU trade
  • Examine how the UK can build a customs agreement that ensures an appropriate level of efficiency for UK business and consumer goods.
