Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has launched a website aimed at helping companies prepare for potential challenges presented by Brexit.
The Brexit Business Resource Hub contains Brexit-related news, links to industry reports and a calendar containing information on related events happening in London.
The website comes in response to a consultation the Mayor held with businesses last month suggesting they felt government guidance on preparing for leaving the EU was insufficient.
Speaking to business chiefs last night, he said: “As we seek to navigate this period of heightened uncertainty, I want you to know that I’ll continue to stand up for your interests.”
Analysis published by Khan earlier this year suggested London could lose 87,000 jobs by 2030 in the event of a no-deal scenario.

Jasmine Whitbread, chief executive of campaign group London First, said that with less than six months until the UK leaves the EU, the hub would be “a valuable one-stop shop for advice and support to the capital’s firms navigating Brexit uncertainty”.
Simon Pitkeathley, Euston Town and Camden Business Improvement Districts chief executive, added: “Whatever the outcome of Brexit is, business owners need to know what the implications will be to their business.”
