An article In the online edition of the Plymouth Herald this week features an interview with Linda Middleton-Jones. The story discusses the benefits of investing in export relations ahead of Brexit and some of the possible outcomes from negotiations with Europe.

In the article entitled Expert tells Plymouth firms how to avoid a Brexit disaster, Linda is quoted encouraging companies to reinforce their relationships with overseas businesses and make contact before Article 50 is triggered.

“It’s about keeping customers and striving for that trade to continue with Europe”

The benefits of strengthening ties and making good contacts with our European counterparts are clearly going to be the focus of any company that wishes to prepare for successful business from 2017 onwards. This is even more important in the South West, where a large proportion of regional revenue and employment is in manufacturing.
