Trade between UK-EU lower since start of 2021

In a recent article published by the Economical and Social Research Institute, they have estimated that UK to EU trade has declined by 16% and EU to UK trade has declined by 20% since the beginning of Brexit on January 1st 2021.

Trade between the EU and UK has recovered to most of its pre-2021 level in value terms since then, but it remains significantly below what it might have been if it followed the growth rate of other trade partners.

A large factor of this has of course been the NI Protocol, which almost 2 years on is still causing difficulty and confusion among businesses not only within the UK but beyond.  Not to mention other factors such as the Port Strikes, Covid-19 and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

While life is steadily getting back to a somewhat normal, the increase in the cost of living definitely isn’t helping matters when it comes to businesses export and import goods.
