Good morning Brexit Britain … what a change in direction in one day …
The statement at 8am this morning from David Cameron, Prime Minister, made it clear that it would be business as ‘usual’ for exporters and those working internationally until October 2016, saying:
‘And I would also reassure Brits living in European countries, and European citizens living here, that there will be no immediate changes in your circumstances. There will be no initial change in the way our people can travel, in the way our goods can move or the way our services can be sold.’
Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, reiterated this position within an hour:
‘There will be no initial change in the way our people can travel, in the way our goods can move or the way our services can be sold.’
He did acknowledge, inevitably:
‘… it will take some time for the United Kingdom to establish new relationships with Europe and the rest of the world.’
While there may be some chaos in the UK market for businesses, the fall in the value of the pound actually makes British exports cheaper abroad. So now is actually a perfect time to hold your nerve and to start exporting or to export more. And we believe digital is a great way to expand your business internationally – so why not try exporting online?
