Brexit: UK and Norwegian perspectives

On 29 March 2017, the UK formally notified the EU of its intention to withdraw from the EU. The UK will cease to be part of the EU on 29 March 2019, unless there is an agreement between the UK and all EU Member States to postpone the Brexit date.

Today, both Norway and the UK, via its EU membership, are participants to the EEA Agreement. Given that the UK is also one of Norway's most important trading partners, any change to the existing legal framework could have significant economic effects for businesses. We will look at both the UK and Norwegian perspective.
