Analysing ‘Brexit’: Opportunities and challenges for economic growth
While much is still unknown and changes on a daily basis, there are some clear and emerging Brexit issues that will affect economic development nationally, regionally and locally. This article summarises the key trading, foreign direct investment and policy issues before showing how these could affect three contrasting case study areas of Sunderland, Suffolk and Southampton. A brief review of the recent performance and economic characteristics of each area is provided. This paper is a longer version of a presentation given at the Westminster Social Policy Forum in London on 14th December, 2016.
