Beyond Brexit – Roundtable

Horizon International recently participated in a roundtable event, hosted by The Business Magazine, focused on the potential post-Brexit impact on UK manufacturing.

Business leaders from Thames Valley companies took part in the event, which covered several potential outcomes from a “deal or no deal” Brexit end-game.

The discussions focused on the potential impact on cross-border trade, logistics, employee retention and export growth.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, this roundtable covered several rather downbeat potential outcomes from a protracted ’deal or no deal’ Brexit end-game.   It took place on 28th November, the day when official government long-term economic analysis revealed that any form of Brexit – both deal or no-deal, will make the UK economy worse off long-term compared with staying in the EU.

Official figures say the UK economy could be up to 3.9% smaller after 15 years under Theresa May’s Brexit plan, and a no-deal Brexit could deliver a 9.3% decrease.

However, there was Brexit positivity too during the discussion, held at Madejski Stadium’s boardroom in Reading.
