Brexit Business Survey Report

Produced by the External Relations
Authored by Statistics Unit, Ministry of External Relations and published on 19 Dec 2017
Prepared internally, no external cost


Jersey has a diverse business sector, and the Brexit Business Survey has allowed us to understand the perceived challenges and opportunities within various industries, including financial services, agriculture, manufacturing, retail and hospitality. 

A broad mix of businesses across a range of industry sectors responded to the survey, although the results predominantly came from larger businesses for which the impacts of Brexit may be more noticeable.

This report, as well as providing clarity on the most pressing concerns for Island businesses, will inform the development of government policy. There is an understandable concern over the future of the Island's trading relationships with the UK and EU, and we have developed a distinct workstream on Customs Union and Trade matters to ensure that the Jersey is in the best possible position once Brexit has taken place.   

It is also clear that Island industries value the contribution made by employees from the United Kingdom and the European Union. We are committed to ensuring that the position of EU citizens living in the Island is resolved as soon as possible. We are equally committed to ensuring that businesses are able to access essential travel links which are necessary for building global trading relationships.
