Interview: Hard Brexit could endanger Poland’s economy

The chief advisor to the British Polish Chamber of Commerce told Poland In English that if no deal on UK’s exit from the European Union is reached, Poland’s EUR 8.2 bn trade surplus with its third largest trading partner could be put at risk.

Michael Dembinski, the chief advisor to the BPCC is skeptical about the effects of Brexit for Poland – whether in its “hard” version of no deal with the EU and Britain having to charge WTO rates for imports, or the “soft version” where there is a transition to membership of the customs union or the European Free Trade Area. In conversation with Poland In English’s Economics Correspondent, Mr Dembinski said that Poland trade surplus with the UK amounts to EUR 8.2bn. He added that Poland will likely continue to gain back office banking jobs from the UK.
