Jersey releases details about Ready for Brexit week

Posted: 08/01/2019

The government of Jersey has released details of its Ready for Brexit (#ReadyBrex) week, starting on Monday 14 January, which aims to support businesses and share ongoing plans with the public as the island prepares for the UK’s exit from the European Union. 

Ministers will set out the government’s preparations for Brexit, including plans for various exit scenarios. Representatives from the Ministry of External Relations will also provide an update on their work with the UK government, the Jersey-EU Settlement Scheme and the legal and practical implications for islanders and businesses.   

Events throughout the week at various locations will include seminars, presentations and lunches, as well as more relaxed pop-up events and Q&A sessions – one of which will give the public a chance to quiz ministers and officials about the government’s plans for Brexit. Anyone who cannot attend can email their questions to

They will also discuss any concerns about passport validity and travelling post-Brexit, including with pets.

Businesses can find out more about the impact of Brexit at a Jersey Business seminar on exporting and importing products, as well as a broader session on how the UK’s departure from the EU will affect local businesses. 

There will also be a Chamber of Commerce lunch with a keynote speech by Senator Ian Gorst (pictured), Minister for External Relations, who will set out the contingency work to prepare residents and businesses for Brexit, and opportunities for Jersey in the post-Brexit world. 

The programme of events will end with a Public Scrutiny Hearing on Friday 18 January, when Senator Gorst will take questions from the Brexit Review Panel.
