Quar­ter of firms baf­fled by Brexit

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Historical Decision -

Re­search by the Univer­sity of Kent found one in four com­pa­nies in the county still have lit­tle un­der­stand­ing of the im­pact of Brexit.

Dr Fragkiskos Filip­paios, reader in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness at Kent Busi­ness School, says this is not un­ex­pected given the un­cer­tainty of the post-brexit trade re­la­tion­ship with the EU mar­ket.

His study found that while Kent busi­nesses are look­ing in­creas­ingly to trade over­seas they still lack ac­cess to in­ter­na­tional part­ners, have low in-house ex­per­tise and lim­ited knowl­edge of avail­able gov­ern­ment funds to sup­port in­ter­na­tional trade.
