We invite all Polish exporters who want to operate on the British market after Brexit to the October webinar. This is an opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about new rules and new opportunities. Our experts will explain to us how to prepare for changes and what aspects to take into account when investing in the UK.
---> This webinar will be conducted in the Polish language <---
In April this year, for the first time since Great Britain left the EU, Poland recorded an increase in exports to that country - data from the Polish Economic Institute (PIE). According to PIE, the value of sales on the British market was 12 per cent higher than in April 2019 (GUS survey). Currently, the value of goods exported from Poland to the British market is growing month by month. These data clearly show a gradual recovery of Polish exports to the UK after Brexit.
Despite major changes on the British market, exports to the Islands are still attractive to Polish entrepreneurs, says Michał Dembiński, chief expert at the British-Polish Chamber of Commerce. - Interestingly, in the case of other EU countries, we notice a decline in interest in the British market, up to 30% compared to 2019. Many companies from Germany, France, Spain, the Netherlands and Italy resigned from the British market, thus creating more opportunities for Polish companies.
But the new Brexit rules and the restrictions caused by the pandemic make the tasks difficult. At the beginning of October, the British government introduced phytosanitary and veterinary checks on EU products, and from January 1, 2022, full customs declarations will come into force, replacing the existing simplified rules. In addition, the UKCA product mark will apply from the new year, which will replace the current CE mark for goods admitted to circulation in Great Britain. These new requirements mean an increased need to invest additional time, people and money for Polish exporters who want to continue trading with the UK.
We want to help Polish entrepreneurs through this challenging transition. For the webinar New opportunities for Polish exporters in the UK after Brexit, we invited specialists who will explain how to prepare for the new restrictions and how to take advantage of the new opportunities that Brexit brings.
