The Chamber

The Franco-British Business Dashboard

Exactly six months after the UK left the European Union the French Chamber of Great Britain, in partnership with fellow member and data science leader Ekimetrics, has launched a unique tool that will help track the state of Franco-British business in the medium to long term, particularly as the pandemic impact subsides.

Leveraging open-source datasets combined with survey data drawn from the Chamber's Members, the Dashboard provides a base to help inform decision-makers as they shape the post-Brexit chapter, from goods and trade to immigration and people.

The first round of survey data showed that 70% of firms experienced delays importing from the EU. 25% of those are delays are less than a week, 28% are 1-2 weeks, 28% last 2-3 weeks and 14% are delayed by 3-4 weeks. 67% of firms said cost of logistics have gone up for imports. Exports were less affected, with 47% of firms experiencing delays exporting to the EU, with most delays lasting less than two weeks.

The dashboard data will be regularly updated to give the most up-to-date trends and insights into impact of Brexit and state of Franco-British business. 

“This dashboard will help track the state of Franco-British business, particularly as the pandemic impact subsides, and provide data to help inform decision-makers as they shape the post-Brexit chapter. We can see there are challenges and potentially more to come, but businesses will continue to bring pragmatism to the table, underpinned by the depth and breadth of the Franco-British relationship, to build beyond Brexit and drive jobs and growth so desperately needed in the wake of Covid.” – Marilise Saghbini, Managing Director at the French Chamber
