EACCNY Brexit Musings

For this initiative, the European American Chamber of Commerce (EACC) in New York asked members from across various industries to ‘muse’ about the now imminent Brexit.

The idea for these insights was to mentally play through different scenarios – a comprehensive deal, or a crash out at the end of 2020 – on a few select business issues that will be effected by Brexit, and to outline the consequences each possible outcome could have.

We hope you will enjoy the EACCNY Brexit Musings!
