What Agricultural sectors will Brexit impact most?
Agriculture is an international business: the UK produces just 60% of its AgriFood consumption, while 70% of its production is exported to the EU. Withdrawal from the EU – scheduled for March 2019 – and subsequently the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) means that the UK will have to create and impose its own policies for the regulation and trade of agricultural goods.
Access to a labour, barriers to trade and increased competition within global markets are among the most important post-Brexit policy issues.
Euractiv invites you to a roundtable in Westminster, focused on AgriFood to discuss questions such as:
What are the biggest threats and opportunities posed by Brexit across the food supply chain?
Which regions in the UK have the most to gain and lose after Brexit?
How can the AgriFood industry position itself to influence Brexit trade talks and negotiations?
What changes should the sector be making to have a Brexit-appropriate business strategy before March 2019?
Will post-Brexit UK AgriFood policy diverge from the EU’s and how?
