GA back at House Of Lords

CEO joins in Parliamentary discussion just before Brexit is due


WITH just two weeks before Brexit is due to take place, Giftware Association CEO Sarah Ward will be meeting with Parliamentarians at the House Of Lords.

The March 13 conference will see the Genesis Initiative discuss where the UK currently stands, two weeks before Brexit, with a focus on legislation in areas such as agriculture, the food sector, trade and customs and other areas particularly affecting SMEs and the home and giftware industry.
Sarah (pictured) said: “It’s great for us to be at these events and to pass on the information to our members. I’m sure the mood will be very interesting around Parliament, with two weeks to go before Brexit day, but we will hopefully come away with some positive and encouraging news and information.”
The Genesis Initiative was formed to improve the quality of the debate on SMEs and create economic reform, with input from entrepreneurs, academics and SME organisations representing over one million members, and all-party support across the House of Lords and Commons.
The discussion for this session include:
 Brexit state of play and messages to Government.
 Brexit regulatory update including agriculture and transport legislation.
 Relations with visiting trade missions and embassy high commissions.
 Developing an access to finance breakage services to improve deal flow.
 Possible US trade visit to Washington.
 Apprenticeships and workplace skills project.
