The impact of new free trade agreements (FTAs) and the referendum debate over the UK’s membership of the EU will share the focus of attention at next month’s AHDB Outlook Conference.
Hosted by the three livestock sectors of the AHDB, representing beef and lamb, pork and dairy, the outlook event will include key presentations on the two issues, each of which could have a significant influence on the UK’s future livestock prospects.
The FTA session, given by Promar International’s Andrew McLay, will examine the potential impact of new agreements on the global competitiveness of the UK livestock industry.
The referendum debate, meanwhile, will be introduced by Trinity College professor, Alan Matthews, with delegates being given the chance to discuss potential market opportunities and issues during a question and answer session with industry experts.
Separate breakout sessions will follow, providing an overview of the market outlook specific to each sector.
The conference, for which delegates must register, will take place at One Great George Street, Westminster, London, on Tuesday, February 9.
