Impact of Brexit on businesses on menu at breakfast meeting
A Brexit breakfast meeting was held in the Ferrycarrig Hotel recently. The free event held in association with Wexford Chamber of Commerce and IntertradeIreland provided invaluable help, advice and guidance to local businesses as they make preparations for Brexit and how to deal with the possible challenges and opportunities ahead.
Mark Sterritt, Manager of the Brexit Advisory Service, told the audience that the InterTradeIreland All-Island Business Monitor shows that increasing numbers of businesses are now making plans for how Brexit might impact them and the breakfast meeting provided everyone with practical advice from expert speakers from the SBCI and a local business case study.
He said that 'InterTradeIreland were delighted to work in partnership with Wexford Chamber to ensure that businesses can start to plan and learn how they may be impacted, as well as taking actions to mitigate the risks. 'Brexit is a reality and now is the time for businesses to engage and learn of the different scenarios that may emerge.
'We strongly encourage businesses to avail of support from the Brexit Advisory Service, particularly the Start to Plan Funding which provides €2,000 of funding and the application process only takes 10 minutes to complete.'
