Brexit

Whilst there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the UK’s future relationship with the EU, the Chamber is keen to support businesses in the region to prepare for any changes that may come to fruition as the result of Brexit.

On this page you can find support from the Chamber on how your business can prepare for Brexit and also information on the policy and lobbying efforts of the Chamber.

Since the EU referendum in June 2016, the Chamber network has been delivering the views of business on the impact of Brexit to politicians and decision makers. Our accreditation to the British Chambers of Commerce means that we have a direct link into Westminster and can pass on any thoughts of businesses in West Cheshire & North Wales. Therefore, if you have any views please send them through to Matt Hodgson.
