Seminar - The UK-Ireland Agri-Food Sector: A Shared History, A Shared Future


This event will be the 5th installment of the series following the Infrastructure, ICT, Financial Services and Brexit Seminars that have taken place in the UK and Ireland.

Location: Intercontinental Hotel, Dublin
Time/Date: 5th September 2018 @ 08.00 am to 10.30 am

The UK has been Ireland's most important export market and trading partner for agri-food products. The sector remains of vital importance to this trading relationship today as the UK is the largest importer of Irish agri-food products. Similarly, Ireland is the largest UK export market for food, feed and drink. The UK’s decision to leave the European Union thus presents a challenge to this historical interdependence. This seminar will explore how to prepare for this change and ensure that the strong trading links forged over the past 900 years continue well into the future.

This Agri-Food Seminar entitled 'The UK-Ireland Agri-Food sector: A Shared History, A Shared Future’ will focus on 2 specific topics:

i. Preparing for the Challenge—How Agri-business is preparing for post-Brexit trade.
ii. The UK-Ireland Agri-Food sector: A Shared History, A Shared Future.

Experts, speakers, stakeholders and commentators will address these topics with interactive participation from the audience.

The Keynote Speaker for this event will be: Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Mr. Michael Creed T.D. Additional speakers will include Patrick Coveney, CEO of Greencore, Tara McCarthy, CEO of Bord Bia and Ulster Bank’s own Head of Agriculture Dr Ailish Byrne.
