‘While representing a significant challenge, Brexit presents an opportunity to shape the direction of the industry to benefit future farming generations in Wales.’
That was the message from NFU Cymru President John Davies, who addressed industry stakeholders and fellow members during an NFU Cymru workshop at #NFU18.
The NFU Cymru session also provided a platform for key figures from Welsh Government, including the Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Planning and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths AM, to outline their thoughts on how they can work collaboratively with the Union to achieve the Union’s vision of a productive, profitable and progressive agricultural industry delivering jobs, growth and investment for Wales.
