Event description

Description

At this event we will explore the impact of Brexit on cross-channel trade and the practical challenges facing the UK economy post-Brexit.

The UK economy is a model based on complex logistics chains, rapid transport of supplies and finished products and increasingly demanding consumer behaviour. The movement of goods is fundamental to its growth and success and also to the satisfaction of one of the most advanced consumer populations in the world.

The forthcoming separation of the UK from the EU, associated with leaving the Single Market and the Customs Union and the consequent creation of a Free Trade Agreement will inevitably impact on our future model.

Experts from industry, academia and consultancy have combined to propose a detailed view of the realities and challenges facing some of our most critical industries such as food supply, car manufacturing and express delivery to an audience drawn from all sectors of industry, government, media and research.

Speakers:

Introduction
Jonty Bloom, Business Correspondent, BBC News

The Economic footprint of the Channel Tunnel fixed link
Harriet Walker, Assistant Director, Ernst and Young LLP

The importance of logistics costs for international trade
Dr Michael Gasiorek, Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Sussex and Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory; Director of InterAnalysis Trade

Discussants:

David Bailey, Professor of Industry, Aston University

Anastassia Beliakova, Head of Trade Policy, British Chamber of Commerce

Allan Edwards, Director of Stakeholder Relations, Institute Grocery Distribution

Q&A with speakers and representative from Eurotunnel
