Customs Workshops for businesses


With Brexit just 32 days away, Minister Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, together with Minister Paschal Donohoe TD, Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, today launched the first in a series of Customs Training Workshops, which are being delivered for the Government by the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) across the country. 

The fully booked workshop, taking place in Cootehill, Co. Cavan, was attended by 25 business people from around the region who may be directly affected by Brexit.  This included manufacturing, food, logistics and service companies, all of whom will need to deal with customs on import and export of goods or materials after the 29thMarch if the UK leaves the Customs Union and Single Market. The nationwide workshops are open to all businesses from all sectors and events will take place in every region.

Minister Humphreys also launched two new Regional Enterprise Plans for the border region today to strengthen enterprise development, one for the North East and another for the North West. Full text Here
