Brexit Questions

Many of the questions asked relate to Brexit. UK professional clothing companies are currently experiencing new rules, processes and paperwork when trading with their customers in EU countries and are clearly looking to understand the complexities involved.

The UK government secured a trade and political continuity agreement with Tunisia which is said to ‘ensure British businesses and consumers benefit from continued trade with Tunisia after the UK left the EU’ on January 1st 2021.

Textile industry expertise to answer Brexit questions

This is why the PCIAW® has invited Adam Mansell from the UKFT. Adam will be onboard to explain what the continuity trade deal means for businesses in the professional clothing industry and how this will affect UK businesses seeking to continue trading with their established European customers. He will be available for questions on the day in the webinars Q&A.

This nearshore partnership is supported by the British government.
