Black Country Chamber International Trade and Brexit Seminars aim to address the issues and challenges that Black Country companies may face or are facing in this current global trade environment.

For our March meeting the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have approached us at Black Country Chamber of Commerce to have a slot to come and speak to you directly. They have expressed that they are very keen to help businesses understand what would happen in the event of a no deal EU exit scenario, and how that would affect them. They will give a presentation and will answer questions.
