What’s next for Brexit and chemicals?

SHARE THIS STORY

The UK is about to go to the polls again to try and decide the Brexit issue.  Chemicals will be one of the industries most affected by the decision, as it depends on cross-border supply chains.  As the UK Chemical Industries Association has warned:

“The chemical industry in the UK and in Europe needs a relationship with the European Union that delivers: frictionless, free trade; regulatory consistency and alignment; and access to skilled people.”

Next Tuesday at 11.00 GMT, I will be presenting at the second live ICIS webinar on Brexit’s potential impact on the industry, along with ICIS deputy news editor, Tom Brown and ICIS Chemical Business Deputy Editor, Will Beacham.

The webinar will cover the following:
• Update on the political situation, possible scenarios, how to prepare for Brexit
• Trade deal scenarios and tariffs
• Impact on UK and Europe petrochemicals
