The implications of the European transition for key Welsh economic sectors

Following its exit from the EU, the UK Government has started to negotiate free trade agreements with the EU and with other countries around the world.

The negotiations and their outcomes will have a profound impact on the Welsh economy, as a whole and individually for key sectors. The Counsel General and Minister for European Transition is keen to understand how the Welsh economy’s key sectors are likely to be affected by the changes and how this should inform the Welsh Government’s discussions with the UK Government.

This report presents evidence from a review of the literature, interviews with sectoral bodies and associations from across Wales, and a roundtable discussion with experts.
