THE Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) will be holding a Brexit briefing at its next Outlook Seminar.
The seminar will be held online at 10am on 03 December in a 30 minute format.
David Bailey, who is Professor of Business Economics at the University of Birmingham’s Business School, will be talking about the probable impact of finally leaving the EU. Bailey is an established expert in the effects of Brexit on the motor industry.
Owen Edwards, an Associate Director and Automotive Specialist at the business advisory firm Grant Thornton, will provide a general overview of the economic outlook for next year.
Sam Watkins, VRA Chair, said:
There is a long list of factors that could have a major effect on the remarketing sector in 2021 but Brexit is probably the elephant in the room. While things could yet be resolved relatively favourably, we’re still facing the very real possibility of a no-deal exit from the EU and all the very real negatives that would bring. We’re therefore very pleased to have David Bailey on hand to provide an essential briefing and bring a little welcome clarity to the situation.
Also, in the wake of the pandemic, the general economic situation remains very unpredictable. Owen Edwards of Grant Thornton is an old friend of the VRA and very highly rated by our members, so we are looking forward to hearing what he has got to say about how the picture is likely to develop.
