Brian Dakers of the Brexit Toolkit team visited Brussels this month for meetings with senior civil servants and politicians. The aim of the visit was to hear the perspectives of those at the coal face of trade facilitation and negotiation, acting on behalf of UK plc in the European Parliament and it's related bodies. During the visit, Brian met with Jude Kirton-Darling
, MEP for North East England, to discuss the effects of Brexit on UK businesses trading both with the EU and beyond. Brian said: "It was a pleasure to catch up with Jude, and to meet her team, who are doing great work on behalf of the UK in these critical times.
It was good to hear feedback on the toolkit, and discuss measures prudent businesses can take to plan for the likely outcomes of Brexit negotiations. Jude re-emphasised her availability in regard to helping UK businesses succeed in EU markets, including through greater understanding of it's mechanisms. I will continue to forward queries and questions, and remain confident in her practical, expert guidance in the months and years ahead." Click on the LinkedIn article or email Brian
