Do you need additional information on new requirements in trade between the EU and the UK?
Much changed when Britain left the EU single market and customs on 1 January 2021. The Trade and Cooperation Agreement, which ended on Christmas Eve 2020, did not change the single market, but created many new practices that affect trade travel, exports and imports. Goods and services.
Together with various partners and the British Embassy in Finland, the Foreign Ministry is organizing four webinars to handle new practices in trade.
Webinars provide an overview of changes and new requirements. They are specifically targeted at companies that are already trading or planning to export and import.
Webinars are organized every Tuesday in May at 9.00. Write the time on the calendar now!
