Expert Opinion“Britain’s exit from the EU is proving complex and citizens as well as businesses are looking for answers regarding their rights and the future trading environment. The panel explained the Agreements already entered into between the UK and Switzerland and highlighted many issues from continuity of trade to migration of labour and customs to name but a few.
