Brexit is a significant part of NFU Cymru’s work. Since the decision was taken to leave the European Union, NFU Cymru has been at the forefront of representing members’ interests to Welsh and UK Government, participating and representing the sector’s views in the relevant stakeholder groups and setting out the needs of Wales’ farmers with regard to Brexit.
NFU Cymru has held numerous member meetings on Brexit and has made a number of submissions to various bodies. In addition NFU Cymru has produced a series of detailed Brexit policy documents looking at trade, regulation, labour and domestic agricultural policy.
As trade negotiations with Australia and New Zealand reach an advanced stage, farming organisations from across the UK have urged the government to remain committed to its negotiating objectives and stand up for UK farmers in all of its negotiations.
