Was the Autumn Statement a missed opportunity to make the UK more attractive in light of Brexit?
Whilst Theresa May has the backing of parliament to trigger Article 50, the recent judgement from the Supreme Court meant the government had to seek an act of parliament to formally do so.
With the Brexit bill set for its final vote in the House of Commons today, we are edging closer to triggering this within the original timescale by the end of March 2017.
Alongside this, we also await detailed plans for exiting the EU.
So, how does this; the Brexit result here in the UK and the elections in the USA potentially affect your business and customers.
And there’s more to come with countries within the EU due to go to the public to vote for their political leaders in 2017.
Mrs May’s vision is to see the UK as the ‘Leader of free trade’.
How are we going to achieve this? What obstacles are in the way?
There are constant opportunities and challenges in business - but what are they in the international arena at present?
There are some immediate, as well as longer term potential issues that organisations operating globally need to consider.
