What Europe's business leaders think about Brexit
The die is cast - but how should the UK make the most of life beyond the EU?
Here are five perspectives from around the continent on the opportunities and challenges ahead, brought together by Management Today magazine.
Are UK business people lazy and fat?
Britain’s trade secretary came under attack on Friday for accusing British business of becoming lazy and fat - hitting out at executives more interested in playing golf on a Friday afternoon than exporting products overseas.
However new research has found that the majority of UK small businesses are not exporting abroad, potentially missing out on millions of pounds in lost revenue.
Thailand – New Chamber bi-lateral agreement to broker trade
Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group and the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand have recently signed a bi-lateral agreement aimed at raise the awareness of opportunities for UK businesses and facilitating trade.
Ranked 49th out of 189 countries in the World Bank’s Annual Ease of Doing Business Survey, Thailand continues to offer exciting business opportunities for UK companies that are prepared to take a serious interest in this dynamic market. Thailand is keen to boost its competitiveness and Thais hold UK products, services and companies in high regard.

But the problem is one of networking – getting the relevant Indian and British companies to talk to each other.
