Orgalim comments on ongoing EU-UK trade agreement discussions

14 December 2020

We are deeply concerned that the EU and the UK have so far failed to find an agreement on trade, which is vital to help our companies on the two sides of the channel to trade. We call on both parties to continue negotiating and to find an agreement as soon as possible to avoid major negative disruptions to trade that would badly hinder our companies' growth, which is already under pressure due to COVID-19.

This agreement is particularly important for our companies: the annual value of EU-UK trade in products manufactured by Europe’s technology industries currently stands at €177 billion.
