About BCCI Brexit Updates:

The Transition Period we are currently enjoying will come to an end on 31 December 2020.  On 1 January 2021, the full effects of Brexit will be felt by everyone doing business between the European Union and the United Kingdom.  The trade negotiations have still not been concluded and many aspects of the future trading relationship remain uncertain.  From 15 October (Boris Johnson’s deadline for conclusion of the trade talks) until December we will be hosting a bi-monthly series of streamed discussions with members of the business community, relevant authorities and experts, aimed at bringing our viewers up to date on latest developments, highlighting in so doing the major issues likely to arise and ways in which businesses can prepare for life  in the post Transition Period world.


15 October at 2:00pm CET


Episode 1: The deadline for clarity for the Johnson Government 

In this first episode of our Brexit Updates series we will ask ourselves where we are in the journey towards the end of the Transition Period and take stock of what we know has happened so far and what might happen next.  We are delighted to welcome HM Consul-General Milan and Director Italy, Department for International Trade, Catriona Graham, who will join our discussion and will talk about the Keep Business Moving campaign launched by the British Government to reach out to small and medium sized enterprises in Italy and to help them to prepare for the changes that they will face.  We will also be joined by an expert from Department for the Environment Fisheries and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to talk about the new regime governing Geographical Indications (IGP, DOP, STG), a matter of some significant interest in Italy given the importance of the Made n Italy brand and especially in relation to food and wine.


  • Steven Sprague – Chairman of the BCCI Brexit Committee & Partner of CastaldiPartners
  • Catriona Graham – HM Consul-General Milan and Director Italy, Department for International Trade
  • Anita Nappo – European Affairs Officer, British Embassy Rome
