REPORT:


Just shortly after our meetings with Philip Rycroft, Permanent Secretary of DExEU, and Lucy Frazer QC MP, Ministry of Justice, the Chamber was fortunate enough to welcome Ambassador Alison Rose for an evening event on Brexit updates, in a room full of high level business representatives.


After Theresa May’s meeting with the EU in Salzburg, members were eager to hear what views the Ambassador had on the current situation. It had previously been reported that the Irish border had been a main issue in the negotiations, with neither side wanting to budge. May’s Chequer’s plan saw a border with easy access for both sides, whereas the EU didn’t want to provide a free passage into the single market. However, it is clear that both sides wish to strike a deal.


The event saw members engaging actively with Miss Rose, with a number of topics discussed such as future economic relations, the issue of the Irish Border, rights of migrant workers, the impact a no deal will have on migrant workers, single market and trade tariffs and also legal and financial services. This discussion was very beneficial for members, who received lots of useful information from the Ambassador.


Following the event, we were able to catch up with a senior member of the Chamber to inform us about their experience of the event. They stated “Events like this help our office and clients to keep track of the latest developments on Brexit, through comments by UK government representatives and the concerns shared by British Chamber members.”
