On 8 September the Institute of Exports and International Trade released a video of a webinar concerned with UK plans for 8 freeports across England to support the UK to make the most of its post-Brexit opportunities and to deliver on its pledge of ‘levelling up’ regions across the UK. In partnership with Solent Freeport – one of the 8 – the Institute 1-hour webinar focused on the benefits of freeports for UK trade, and covered:

Taxation benefits including duties and import VAT

Opportunities to reduce paperwork and checks

Opportunities to benefit from freeports’ AEO status

Connectivity between freeports and other international hubs

Best practice for making the most of freeports


Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
