Earlier this year, KADA Research Limited was commissioned to deliver a post EU exit business engagement research project to assess the impact of EU exit on the international trade activities of SME businesses across the (then) Humber LEP region.
A suite of reports was undertaken for this study which appear below. The study involved discussions with stakeholders, a business survey and extensive desk and statistical analysis. An interactive dashboard of trade statistics was also developed for the study which can be accessed.
Project outcomes include the creation of an interactive dashboard of trade statistics, plus the following written reports:
Trade Statistics Report (see infographic summary)
Business Trade Survey Results (see infographic summary)
Contextual Report Trade Challenges and Potential
Stakeholder Findings and Recommended Further Action
All above reports and the dashboard can be accessed via
The research findings and recommendations will now feed into the developing HEY LEP Export Plan.
The HEY LEP wishes to extend its thanks to colleagues at KADA Research for their insights, expertise and positive collaboration shown throughout the duration of this project.
