Brexit: What’s next?
If you’re a Canadian exporter or investor currently doing business in the United Kingdom, you’re likely anxious about how Brexit will unfold. As the Mar. 29 exit deadline looms and talk of further extensions continue, there’s no doubt the eventual outcome will have an enormous impact on the U.K., its citizens and those conducting business with the island nation. For Canadian exporters, what exactly these impacts will be remains murky.
As Canada’s second-largest services trading partner, there’s much at stake.
