The Committee seeks written evidence submissions addressing the following:
- What are Wales’ priorities for future trade relations with the EU, and what are the implications of any future UK-EU trade and customs arrangements for Wales?
- Following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, what opportunities will there be for Wales in trade negotiations with non-EU countries, and how should the most important areas to the Welsh economy be represented in different trade models?
- How will the revised Northern Ireland Protocol affect the access of goods to and from Wales as part of the UK internal market, including customs checks, processes and declarations?
- What additional capacity is required at Wales’ ports to manage checks and customs arrangements for GB-NI trade after the implementation period?
- What benefits could freeports bring to Wales as part of the UK’s post-Brexit trade strategy?
- How will any future trading models affect agricultural trade in Wales, including the level of trade, tariffs and export of Welsh food and drink?
- What role, if any, should the devolved administrations play in UK trade policy and how can key Welsh interests be best reflected in the UK’s trade priorities and future negotiating strategies?
