As the impending Brexit deadline of the 31st January 2020 fast approaches, an understanding of the implications that this will have on your company, staff and doing business in the UK is of crucial importance. To provide support with this, the week before this deadline the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the UK will be collaborating with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) of the British government to provide a special briefing.
The panel of notable speakers from different government departments will provide an update on the latest Brexit developments and conditions, while also explaining the vital role of their divisions. There will then be the opportunity for participants to ask any questions that they might have.
