The UK's automotive trade association, the SMMT, has launched a 'Brexit Readiness Programme' to help the UK auto industry prepare for the UK leaving the EU next year. With less than six months to secure a withdrawal deal and growing concerns of a 'no-deal' cliff-edge when the UK leaves the EU next year (30 March), the programme is described as 'part of ongoing efforts to provide support for small and medium sized (SMEs) member companies at this critical time'.
