Brexit disruption in first weeks of year is sign of more to come, economists warn
13 February 2021
Thomas Sampson, associate economics professor at the London School of Economics, has predicted a 36 per cent fall in exports to the EU over the next decade. He said it was too early to claim that economists' forecasts been "validated" by the experience of recent weeks. The first tranche of hard data on exports is not expected from the Office for National Statistics until mid-March, and the full impact may not be known for years to come, he said.
