Welsh Affairs Committee
The deadline for written submissions was Wednesday 29 August 2018. If you would like to send a submission, please contact Committee staff.
Trade with the EU and the rest of the world is an important contributor to the Welsh economy, and Brexit raises major questions about what impact future trade and customs arrangements will have on trade between Wales and other countries.
Following the publication of a UK Government white paper setting out its vision for the future UK-EU trading relationship, the Committee will investigate what the proposed trading and customs arrangements would mean for Wales—particularly given the extensive trade movement of goods through ports connecting Wales and Ireland.
The inquiry focuses on what different options for future UK-EU trade and customs arrangements would mean for Wales, and what opportunities there are for Wales in securing new trade agreements with non-EU nations.
Evidence given by Dr Kristen Hopewell, Senior Lecturer in International Political Economy, University of Edinburgh, Maddy Thimont Jack, Researcher, Institute for Government, Professor Leonard Alan Winters, Professor of Economics and Director of the UK Trade Policy Observatory, University of Sussex
