[September 11, 2017]


In June 2016, the British people decided in a referendum that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union. More than a year later that is one of the very few facts which is still undisputed: the UK government proceeds with this Brexit. But how and when the United Kingdom will not be a member of the current EU-28 is still very unclear. It causes uncertainty for a lot of British companies but also for the thousands of American, Asian and European firms which have operations in the United Kingdom. How can corporations develop a robust Brexit strategy? In a recent white paper BCI Global explores the options.
