CROCIS (Centre Régional d’Observation du Commerce, de l’Industrie et des Services), the economic think tank and research unit of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, published on 19 July 2016 a short survey on the state of IDF (Ile de France) Region / UK economic relations in the context of Brexit, following the vote of the British electorate on 23 June 2016 to leave the European Union.
The United Kingdom is an important commercial partner of Ile de France. It is the 3rd most important destination of Francilian exports, to the United States and Germany. The UK is the 7th source of imports into IDF. In 2015, the total value of commercial exchanges between the two territories were in excess of € 5.8 bn for Francilian exports to the UK and € 6.2 bn for Francilian imports from the UK.
