It is indispensable to assess how trade and FDI among the UK and the rest of world would be affected post-Brexit. This paper investigates how Brexit will affect exports and FDI from China, EU, and the US to the UK economy. Using econometric models with time series quarterly data for the period of 2001 through 2017 the results of this quantitative study indicate that Brexit will have significant impacts on trade and FDI from China, the United States, and EU to the UK. The topic is of great importance because it has severe consequences not only for the UK economy but also for the rest of the world. The quantitative results of this study suggest that Brexit has a negative statistically significant impact on trade and FDI from the EU and the US to the UK; however, trade and FDI from China will increase post-Brexit since China is highly integrated into the UK economy and has already established close trade relationships with the UK through mergers and acquisitions in recent years.
