EU leaders say the Brexit withdrawal agreement is not up for negotiation, pushing the UK closer to a no deal brexit
Companies seeking information on how different Brexit scenarios will impact them can email their questions to [email protected]
The line of communication was established Luxembourg’s chamber of commerce, along with the foreign affairs ministry and European Parliament representation in Luxembourg.
“The real communication campaign around this helpline will really start on February 8 at a press conference,” the chamber told our sister magazine Paperjam, adding: “Nevertheless, we have already received calls and some questions in writing. For the moment, and this is in our opinion a good sign, in our opinion, that there have been relatively few.”
Negotiations concerning Britain’s departure from the European Union remain ongoing until the departure date of 29 March 2019. The chamber of commerce said that once the outcome is known, it expected a gradual increase in queries.
Chamber of commerce director Carlo Thelen told Delano on 16 January that companies with direct links to the UK have made contingency plans. Where the need for information remained was with the SMEs with no direct contact, but who could be impacted through their supply chains, legislation and customs duties. But there are also likely to be questions regarding labour and cross-border employment.
People with questions, can also reach the helpline by calling +352 42 39 39 372.
