Policy Forum for Wales

Brexit and the Welsh Economy

TO BE PUBLISHED December 2017

Delegates at this seminar will discuss the challenges and opportunities for the Welsh Economy as the United Kingdom prepares to withdraw from the European Union.

It follows the Welsh Government’s white paper on Brexit which sets out its priorities ahead of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, including retaining full access to the Single Market, guaranteeing the rights of EU migrants living in Wales, the replacement of current EU funding and the establishment of a transitional phrase after Brexit.

Planned sessions will examine what Brexit will mean for different sectors of the Welsh Economy, with uncertainty over the terms of transferring EU legislation to UK law, and the challenges for adapting to new trading arrangements.

Delegates will also consider the wider implications of Brexit on devolution - following the Welsh Government’s policy document - with questions surrounding the future framework of inter-governmental relations regarding the forthcoming repatriation of powers from the EU.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for Wales seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
