New British-Irish trading service to help cope with Brexit
A new service to help Irish and UK companies to do more business has been launched by the British Irish Chamber of Commerce (BICC). ‘BIG: The British Irish Gateway for Trade’ will link members of chambers of commerce and trade groups. Launching the service which is free to members of trade organisations, John McGrane of BICC said: “At a time when businesses are preparing for Brexit, they appreciate a resource like BIG which helps them to grow their business by being introduced to more customers and suppliers across the UK and Ireland. 2017 will focus all our minds on the importance of the trade between Britain and Ireland which supports over 400,000 jobs.
“The new service lets businesses find the trading partners they want within a trusted network of like-minded firms across the two islands. It’s backed up by the resources of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce and the input of enterprise supporters and Chambers.”
