This report analyses the opportunities and risks to the British economy, posed by the UK’s departure from the European Union. The recommendations urge the Government not to take either an overly aggressive or defensive approach to negotiations, and to ensure business, civil society and local leaders’ voices are properly encorporated into the Brexit process. The report also includes original analysis of the regions and sectors most vulnerable to the risks of leaving the EU, identifying Wales, Northern Ireland, the North East and London as being at particular risk, along with manufacturing and agriculture.
