North East England Chamber of Commerce has a week-long series of virtual events with advice and international trade experts to support companies trading with the EU, in the wake of Brexit.

The week starts on Monday, 26 April, with an expert panel session analysing the content and impact of the new EU trade deal and the future of the UK-EU relationship.

There will also be practical sessions for exporters and importers on everything from customs borders to the Irish Border and VAT.

Jack Simpson, Chamber training and global network adviser said: “We know there are many businesses in our region who have struggled tremendously with the changed trading arrangements post-Brexit and we want to help them. This week will help equip people with what they need to know, how we as an organisation can support them and the future landscape of EU trading.”

As part of the week there will be also a webinar on the service sector and new regulations impacting on its relationship with Europe. The event will focus on what the deal meant for businesses in the service, digital and creative space, and what the future for the UK service sector might be.

Speakers at the different events include Theresa May’s former special adviser Raoul Ruparel from Deloitte, Professor Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs at King’s College London and Dr. Anna Jerzewska, Director of Trade & Borders Consultancy.

The Chamber has a dedicated international trade team with experts on customs documentation, exporting and importing, trade networks and building up global trade. Further information on this and Brexit Week is available here. The events are also open to non-members.
