Welcome to the August edition of EU Business News; bringing you the very latest updates and insight from across the European Union.

Recently, with all the talk of the calamities that issues such as Brexit could cause has led people to examine how far we have come over ten years and how the union will change over the coming months and years. After all, the global financial crisis began 10 years ago, and led to the European Union's worst recession in its six-decade history. The European Commission reported that this is now back to recovery, thanks to decisive action on their part.

Post- Brexit Britain is a particularly important topic currently, and as such in this month’s edition Dmitry Leus of East-West Connect, who has written for EU Reporter, explores how will the banks cope and adjust to possible restrictions on London-based operations post-Brexit.

The future is also a key topic under discussion as exam results come out and students and employers alike ponder the future of the EU’s workforce and how this will affect its corporate landscape.

Exam season coincides with the news that simulation games developer and publishing company Dovetail Games is increasing its Scottish workforce by 40% with 20 new jobs, taking the number of staff to 50. This will offer the region exciting chances for further growth, as we explore.
