Booking information

In the fourth webinar of Chamber’s  Countdown to Brexit series our expert panel assess the state of play – are the negotiators out of the tunnel, is it deal, no deal or skinny deal, have they resolved the Northern Ireland Protocol and have the diggers broken ground at the new border control post building sites?

This week should tell the tale.

Our expert panellists Deirdre Maguire of InterTrade Ireland and Seamus Leheny of Logistics UK have provided solid advice and critical information to help support North West  businesses through the countdown to Brexit and are joined this session by Aodhán Connolly, NI Retail Consortium, to discuss the realities of this week’s decision-making and its effect on cross border trade.
