Stimulated by the presentations and discussions in the morning, the afternoon will focus on some of the key  questions the UK faces as to its future trading regulations, partners and arrangements, including the role of potential non-tariff barriers and issues around existing preferential schemes.

The day will conclude with a discussion, questions and comments on issues raised throughout the day addressed by a panel of some of the UK’s key agricultural stake-holders and members of the economics profession - including reflections on research and data gaps that need to be undertaken by agricultural economists.
