Shortly after the Brexit Trade Bill entered Parliament, BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today talked to Chris Southworth, Secretary General of the ICC United Kingdom regarding his thoughts on how the Bill – and Customs Bill to follow – might affect UK trade.
Both Bills are expected to set the foundation for the UK to become an independent global trading nation. However, as Southworth explains, more information is still needed for businesses to make the most of upcoming opportunities.
Southworth explains that “although the government has released groundwork trade details necessary to leave the EU, it would be nice to still see more information that companies can work with. Businesses are eager for more information now to make urgent decisions now – both companies here, but also those that the UK is trading with.”
