The UK Livestock Brexit Group has called on Government to be proactive to benefit from the ’tremendous opportunity’ of Brexit
The Government must be proactive in winning new markets if the livestock sector is to take advantage of the ‘tremendous opportunity’ from Brexit.
The UK Livestock Brexit group called on the Government to ‘act now’ to open up overseas markets.
“This is the ethos of successful trade relationships, but it is best done in close alliance with Government, since winning these markets takes hard, sustained work, involving Government.”
Mr Dodds said he was aware these agreements took time and commitment so to be ready with deals in place post-Brexit, the work needed to be done now and was pleased ministers were now talking about transition periods.
