Brexit webinars aim to ‘prepare’ islanders

A two-day online event has been planned to help islanders and businesses prepare for the end of the Brexit transition period.

The webinar series, organised by the Government of Jersey, will consist of both public and invitation-only industry sessions, focusing on travel, business and trade.

It will be held on 22 and 23 October, ahead of the UK’s exit from the EU on 1 January 2021.

External Relations Minister Senator Ian Gorst said the island was preparing for “all potential outcomes”.

“Regardless of the outcome of these negotiations, there will be immediate changes for the island from the 1 January 2021.

“We want to ensure that islanders, businesses and affected industries are aware of these changes and have time to prepare for them.”

The sessions will be streamed on the government’s YouTube and Facebook channels, with a full list of scheduled events available on their website.
