Is free trade a short-term solution to managing a ‘No Deal’ scenario?
With a trade deal between the UK and the EU, looking more uncertain to meet the March 2019 deadline, would the implementation of a UK temporary period of free trade offer a short-term solution to ease supply chain issues?
This webinar will cover:
- How easily can it be implemented?
- Can health & safety standards be guaranteed?
- How could logistical challenges be overcome?
- Would a short-term fix compromise a long-term solution?
