The board of Publishing Ireland joins the French Publishers Association and other EU voices in the publishing in pledging its support for the UK publishing industry at this uncertain time for the industry. Both countries have many common ground issues and as such, we will continue to work with our neighbour on trade concerns such as copyright and the publishing value chain.  As its closest neighbour, we believe that now is time for continued dialogue and for our EU partners to reaffirm its commitment to what has always been a productive trade relationship with the UK.
