Progress made but many exporters still too focused on Britain
Concern over Brexit reaches all-time high but are companies doing enough to prepare?
With the food sector proving to be particularly vulnerable it is a worrying trend that sees exports to the UK actually rising
First the good news. It seems judging by figures published by Enterprise Ireland on Wednesday that more companies are wising up to the dangers of Brexit.
Publishing its annual report, the State agency said that the number of companies who have “Brexit-proofed” their business jumped substantially last year with the organisation going so far as to work one-on-one with vulnerable clients on their contingency plans. Enterprise Ireland has also made €74 million in funding available to companies looking to pivot away from the UK.
