This conference is designed to coincide with the UK triggering Article 50 and starting its process to withdraw from the EU. Our aim is to look in greater detail and some of the critical issues that will follow. These include what UK Free Trade Agreements might contain and what will be the negotiating priorities, the economic consequences of no longer being within the legal boundary of the European Court of Justice and what the industrial policy should look like. We will close with a panel session on how economists can most effectively communicate with the public over this period.
