Event description

Description

Britain’s manufacturing industry is getting a boost from the weaker pound which is strengthening export demand, offsetting concerns about the election and prospect of Brexit. Higher import prices should in theory encourage UK households to move towards domestically produced goods and services and away from imported goods. How close is this theory to reality and how long will it last?

With Article 50 Triggered- the two year countdown is on. As with most other debates concerning Brexit, there is still a lack of clarity on the implications for the Procurement / Supply Chain and Engineering functions of UK businesses.

CIPS will be running another survey later in the year and announcing the results at the CIPS Annual Conference 2017. We would like to invite you to discuss what is expected in more detail, specifically focusing on the following:

  • Devaluation / fluctuations in exchange rates

  • On-shoring supply chains

  • Reducing red tape on trade with the EU.

  • Britain’s ability to negotiate a good deal in the Brexit talks

  • Hard Brexit and WTO rules which sectors have most to lose

  • Transition periods, soft Brexit and the probability of no Brexit

  • The implications for our current EU workers during the negotiation period and post Brexit.


The aim of this seminar is to help you understand the legal structures of the European Union, how law is made and enforced and how the UK's legal system is intertwined with that of the EU- Will buying British become the new mantra?

Key speakers

  • John Glen- Director Centre for Customised Executive Development at Cranfield University
