THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This conference presents a timely opportunity to discuss the implications for Ireland posed by the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
It follows the recent completion of Phase 1 of the UK-EU negotiations, including ‘agreement in principle’ on the Irish border and regulation, and the launch of the report Building Stronger Business: Responding to Brexit byOK competing, innovating and trading detailing the Government’s strategy.
Those attending will examine the latest thinking on UK-Ireland trade - including opportunities for attracting UK businesses and positioning Ireland as the gateway to the EU; the challenges for reacting to the wider possible effects of Brexit for Irish businesses - including manufacturers and exporters; and policy options around tax, infrastructure and trade promotion.
They will also consider the future management of customs on the border with Northern Ireland - including key issues for trade and the movement of people - and the future for trade policy.
