Adam Austerfield, Director of Global Market Development at LSE Enterprise and Regional Vice-President of the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain was interviewed about the effects of Brexit on UK nationals in Spain. ‘In the 1970s, when Britain joined the EU, the trade patterns changed fundamentally and underpinned growth in the 80s and 90s. Existing and new trade links would be affected, and people setting up businesses in Spain might look for trade partners other than the UK.’
