Post-Brexit Manufacturing Challenges and Overcoming Them


Covid-19 and Brexit have combined to throw up severe challenges to manufacturers in the West Midlands.

At the next Centre for Brexit Studies online event, a panel of experts will discuss manufacturing and digitalisation in a post-Brexit landscape.

As the new reality of trade barriers to the EU in the form of customs declarations, rules of origin stipulations and vehicle checks and export certification take hold, the event will bring together leading experts in the fields of advanced manufacturing and supply chain resilience to explore how the sector can adapt to the disruptions now facing it.

The event, taking place on Thursday 25 March from 9.00am-10.30am, will be hosted by Professor Alex de Ruyter, Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies, followed by Q&A from the audience.

Panel Members:

Hosted by Professor Alex de Ruyter - Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies.

Professor David Bailey - Senior Fellow at The UK in a Changing Europe, Professor of Business Economics at Birmingham Business School and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Brexit Studies.
