Is the UK’s role in the European supply chain at risk?

García-Herrero, Alicia, Xu, Jianwei, (2016), “Is the UK’s role in the European supply chain at risk?”, Bruegel, 20 December

Over the past decades the UK economy has become a party to global production chains in a number of sectors. Benefiting from tremendous investment by many of the world’s major multinational corporations, the UK has become an export leader, especially for automobiles and pharmaceutical products. We ask whether the UK’s engagement in European supply chains might be at risk once the UK exits the EU.

Admittedly, measuring the impact of Brexit on the supply chain is not easy, in particular because we still do not have enough information about the future economic relationship between the EU and the UK.
