Written Statement - Summary Note of the first meeting of the European advisory group
On 28 September the First Minister issued a Written Statement on the establishment of our European Advisory Group (EAG). The EAG’s role is to provide advice to the Welsh Government on the challenges and potential opportunities Wales faces arising from the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, as well as how Wales can best secure a continued positive relationship with Europe. In that Written Statement, the First Minister set out that whereas discussions within the EAG are in confidence, updates on its work would be provided as part of the Welsh Government’s regular reporting to the National Assembly of progress on work related to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
In this spirit, accompanying this Written Statement is a summary note of the first meeting of the EAG. I am grateful for the advice and insights offered by EAG members in the first meeting and I look forward to future meetings. I will provide a further update on the work of the EAG to the Assembly following its next meeting, which is scheduled for November.
