Preparing Wales to leave the EU

Preparing Wales to leave the EU

The UK government has failed to get the UK Parliament’s agreement to its proposed deal to leave the EU. This has led the EU to extend the UK’s proposed departure date to 31st October 2019, but the UK could leave earlier if a withdrawal agreement is agreed by MPs.

The risk of the UK leaving the EU with no deal by the end of October is now very real, a result that would be disastrous for Wales.

As a responsible government we are preparing for both an agreed exit and a no deal exit from the EU, taking action to protect the interests of Wales and its people.

This website sets out advice for citizens, organisations and sectors across Wales about the steps that need to be taken to prepare to leave the EU and will be updated regularly.

Our No deal action plan sets out the Welsh Government’s view of the potential implications of a no deal Brexit. It explains the actions taken to reduce their impact as far as possible.
