THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This conference will be a timely opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Ireland posed by the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
It follows the publication of Building Stronger Business: Responding to Brexit by competing, innovating and trading by An Tánaiste and the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald TD, which set out the Government’s ongoing and future strategies for responding to Brexit.
Sessions will assess options for the management of customs on the border with Northern Ireland, potential further issues for trade and movement of people as well as wider effects, such as a weaker pound and uncertainty affecting investment.
Delegates will also explore the potential new opportunities offered by Brexit, including positioning Ireland as the only English-speaking gateway to the Single Market, and consider the policy options around tax, infrastructure and trade promotion to maximise the economic benefits for Ireland.
