COVID-19 and BREXIT - Impact on Continuity of Trade

Our next webinar will take place on Thursday, 30th July from 2pm - 3pm and will discuss how the devastating impact of Covid-19 and the fight for business survival has diverted attention away from planning for BREXIT.

BREXIT planning has been seriously impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. For most businesses, their immediate focus has been on managing the implications of COVID-19. However, unless and until there is agreement on a trade deal with the EU, a 'No trade deal BREXIT' is possible. Do British firms have the resilience to cope with a no-deal Brexit after the battering of COVID-19?

The webinar will be a panel discussion chaired by Phil Jones, President of the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce.


  • Professor Christopher Bovis, Professor of International and European Business, University of Hull - The impact of a no deal BREXIT on international trade and the challenges and opportunities for the British economic landscape.
  • John Habergham, Director Myton Law - Challenges of COVID-19 and the legal implications for logistics and international trade
