Frictionless Trade - Considerations for Tariff and Non-Tariff Barriers
The Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry in partnership with LA Marine are hosting a panel presentation which will address the best and worst case scenarios and potential changes in; tariffs, customs, licenses and export documentation required to move goods in and out of Europe.
2016 saw a strong performance by exporters in the South West region. The latest figures show over £21bn worth of goods were exported by almost 14,000 businesses. More than £12bn of this was exported to non-EU markets.
There is already a considerable wealth of experience of exporting to non-European customers. The panel will explore how the tariffs and customs issues and risks are managed on a practical level when trading with non-European customers.
