Over 200 companies from across the greater Dublin region met this morning in the Aviva Stadium for Enterprise Ireland’s Brexit Advisory Clinic, the latest in a series of nationwide roadshow clinics advising Irish companies on supports available through Enterprise Ireland to help them act to address their exposure to Brexit.
The event was opened by Minister of State for Trade, Employment and Business Pat Breen T.D, and comes as the pace of negotiations on Brexit begins to accelerate.
The Brexit Advisory Clinic covered a number of topics including details of the numerous Enterprise Ireland and Local Enterprise Office supports available to help businesses navigate through and beyond Brexit. Companies were briefed on the broad implications of Brexit, specifically around customs, intellectual property and data, employment law and personnel. An economic market outlook for the UK and Eurozone was also shared with the attendees.
Speaking ahead of the event, Minister of State for Trade, Employment and Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection Pat Breen said, "While the UK remains an important trading partner, Brexit and the uncertainty around its impacts on business is a concern and an area of focus. Today’s Enterprise Ireland clinic is a tangible example of the wide range of work we are already doing to support companies to deal with Brexit. The hundreds of businesses in attendance can learn about the various practical supports and advice that are available to them."
