THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Simon McKeever will be speaking on a panel at the Policy Forum on Responding to Brexit. This conference presents a timely opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Ireland posed by the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
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.
