IWA response to the inquiry into Wales’ future relationship with the European Union

The IWA has responded to the National Assembly for Wales’ External Affairs and Additional Legislation inquiry into Wales’ Future relationship with the European Union.

The objectives of the inquiry were:

  • to identify the most essential aspects of the UK’s future relationship with the European Union from a Welsh perspective;
  • to ensure that the issues of most importance to Wales are being adequately represented in the negotiations; and
  • to identify opportunities for continued engagement with the European Union and its institutions after Brexit.

Our response focused on the strategic approach taken by Government and the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee to developing priorities for the future, the nature of relationships with Europe, and headline concerns from our health and economy policy groups.
