After Brexit: Regional economic policy in Wales

October 2nd 2017

The Bevan Foundation is undertaking work on how Wales can respond to the challenges and opportunities arising from Brexit. As part of the ‘After Brexit’ project, it is working with partner organisations to identify new or revised public policies that Wales needs to pursue in preparation for Brexit. Several themed forums will be held, bringing stakeholders together with leading experts to consider innovative solutions and explore emerging recommendations for action by key decision-makers and politicians to consider.

This paper sets out the ‘red lines’ for a future regional policy that would enable Wales to prosper – and be no worse off – after Brexit. Produced in partnership with the Welsh Local Government Association, the proposals are based in part on discussions at a forum hosted by the two organisations on 22nd June 2017 which included academics, policy makers and service delivery organisations, together with desk-based research.

The report gives a brief overview of EU regional policy and funding in Wales to date, as well as the current domestic policy position and outlook (as determined by the current political arrangements). It then considers the potential impact of Brexit on funding and outlines the options for a new regional policy for Wales, including its purpose and delivery.
