With Britain's exit from th EU drawing nearer, German companies are taking precautionary measures to soften the impact of Brexit. DW's Helena Humphrey talks to Paul Maeser from the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
German firms should prepare for a no-deal Brexit, the head of the BDI Federation of Industry has warned. "A hard Brexit would be disastrous," he said as the UK prime minister fights for approval of her exit deal.
The Irish border is the final sticking point in the EU-UK Brexit negotiation, with the future of the frontier far from certain. That is causing worry for businesses north and south, as Arthur Sullivan found out.
For many good reasons, the border in Ireland is a central theme of the Brexit negotiations. Yet there's another UK-EU border, the one in the English Channel, that warrants some consideration.
The EU and UK have drafted a Brexit deal, which includes a financial settlement and a customs union backstop to prevent a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. DW breaks down the agreement.
