What does Brexit mean for trade and development in the UK Caribbean Overseas Territories?

After four years of Brexit negotiations, the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement entered into force on 1 January 2021, setting out new opportunities and challenges for businesses and investors. 

The outcome of the negotiations has significant implications for bilateral trade and investment between the EU and UK Overseas Territories, as the latter were not included in the Brexit trade agreement. The Overseas Territories were also previously beneficiaries of EU aid and other programmes which have come to an end at a time when Caribbean jurisdictions are seeking to shore up their economies.

The event was chaired by: 
Chris Bennett, Managing Director, The Caribbean Council

Our Panellists included:
Chris Duggan, VP of Business Development, Dart
Eric Bush, Chief Officer, Ministry International Trade, Cayman Islands Government
Andy Thorne, CEO, Kestrel Liner Agencies Ltd
