Businesses in Cambridgeshire are invited to complete a survey to share their experiences of Britain’s post-Brexit trading relationship with the European Union.

The results will help the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce understand the issues and challenges companies currently face. 

It is hoped as many business leaders as possible will participate so the appropriate support and resources can be provided.

“There is support we can offer, but we need to act on good evidence, so I encourage as many businesses as possible to contribute their thoughts to this survey."  

The survey covers importing and exporting of goods, skills and labour shortages, customs declarations and transport and logistics.
