Brexit Subcommittee

The British-Irish Chamber of Commerce Brexit Subcommittee was formed as a research and discussion forum dedicated to making timely media and policy interventions on issues of concern for businesses in the wake of the UK Referendum vote to leave the EU.

The Subcommittee works for the mutual benefit of members across all sectors located in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Britain, in furtherance the following goals;

  • To be the “go to forum” for advice and support on Brexit for the business sector.
  • To engage with the Chamber’s sectoral policy committees and key stakeholders across the two islands from relevant agencies and government departments, regulators, consumers and industry at large, to advance the views of our committee members in influencing policy, improving markets and supply chains and assisting our members grow their business base.
  • To advocate the Subcommittee’s “Negotiation Asks” for Brexit. This is a list of key outcomes that should be sought to ensure the strong trading relationship between the Ireland and the UK can continue post-Brexit.
  • To support the Chamber in its Brexit activities and advocacy. This includes identifying key areas of opportunity and action for businesses in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Britain resulting from Brexit.

The Chair of the Brexit Subcommittee is Pat Cambage, VW Group Ireland
