After the CAP: What future for British agri-trade ?

With Article 50 set to be triggered this month, negotiations will begin on Britain’s exit from the EU.

Brexit will signal the end of Britain’s involvement in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Meanwhile, Britain’s plan to leave the European Single Market presents agriculture with further trading uncertainty.

EURACTIV organised a roundtable focused on agri-trade to discuss questions such as:

– What is the priority for agriculture in the Brexit negotiations?
– Which areas of agriculture will be the winners and losers of the UK’s post-Brexit trade regime?
– What are the UK’s agri-trade priorities beyond the EU? How would new extra-EU Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) impact British agriculture?
– Standards? Costs? Prices? What are the implications for farmers and consumers beyond Brexit?
