There is a real risk that the UK will leave the European Union without an agreement. Everything depends on reaching an agreement on time on pending issues. At the same time, the British Government has to clarify its positions as soon as possible to finalize the text of the mentioned Withdrawal Agreement and to advance in the definition of the framework for the future relationship.

Consequently, it is essential that not only business organizations and companies are prepared for an eventual abrupt disengagement of the United Kingdom, but that public authorities do everything necessary to support them by facilitating their adaptation, especially SMEs.

Considering the significant exposure of the Spanish economy to the United Kingdom, this document presents some basic aspects that CEOE considers essential to reduce disruption caused by Brexit to the extent possible in the short, medium and long term.
