As a brief summary of the webinar, supply chains have been hugely impacted, as clearly witnessed in Northern Ireland, as the UK has increased the bureaucracy and paperwork. The general consensus was that the UK had made itself less attractive to do business with. Although goods and manufacturing were clearly impacted, there have yet to be changes announced for what BREXIT would mean for services. NASSCOM described negotiations with the UK Government to be open and were positive about future trade prospects. The main wish from the future of BREXIT negotiations, is that the UK Government ensures ongoing access to global talent, whilst maintaining the same standards for workers’ rights.
