Consequence of Brexit for Brittany

Last August we sent AIKB members a questionnaire about the consequences of Brexit for Brittany.

This was part of a major piece of research undertaken by CESER, (Conseil écononique, social et environnemental régional), on behalf of the Brittany Regional Council.

AIKB was interviewed by CESER in September and then took part in a conference in October where we were able to put forward and discuss the concerns of British residents in Brittany.

The report, entitled 'Et après? Les enjeux du Brexit pour la Bretagne', was ratified by the Region in December and presented to the public on March 2nd.
