Brexit and the Distribution Sector

In much of the analysis to date of the effects of Brexit on economies, far more attention has been paid to the effect on exports than on imports. While it is true that the UK is an important market for Irish goods, the UK is also an even more important supplier of imported goods. Any changes resulting from Brexit, which impose tariffs on imports from the UK, will be damaging for the Irish economy. Even more serious may be the impact of non-tariff barriers, which interfere with this vital channel of inputs for the Irish economy. In this new IIEA paper, the third in the Brexit Sectoral Report series, Professor John FitzGerald, TCD, and Professor Edgar Morgenroth, consider the impact of Brexit on imports of materials to be used as an input in Irish business, as well as its impact on imports of consumer goods.

Brexit and Electricity Cooperation between Northern Ireland and Ireland

Brexit poses a complex set of challenges that could bring unintended consequences for the relationships between the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Britain and the European Union. The development of an integrated electricity market North and South of the Irish border gives rise to a particularly acute set of challenges for the power sector. Against the backdrop of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, in this policy brief Joseph Curtin, IIEA Senior Fellow, explores the implications for the all-island Single Electricity Market (SEM). This analysis comes at a crucial point for the deepening integration of the SEM, which will transition to the Integrated Single Energy Market (I-SEM) in October 2018. The author also considers the potential implications of Brexit for the physical interconnection between electricity markets north and south of the border, and for plans to build further interconnect with mainland Britain and the EU. This paper is the second in the IIEA’s series of reports on the sectoral implications of Brexit.

Future UK-EU Trade Arrangements: Implications for Ireland’s Agri-food Sector

In the ongoing negotiations over the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, the upcoming discussion on the framework for the future relationship between the parties will be critical for Ireland. This IIEA publication analyses the impact that possible UK-EU trade arrangements could have on the Irish agri-food sector. This is the first in a series of IIEA reports looking at the impact Brexit will have on a range of important sectors for Ireland and the all-island economy. Con Lucey, the report author, was Chief Economist of the Irish Farmers Association from 1979 to 2008, where he was involved in providing information and analysis on farm production economics, national economic policy and EU policy. He represented the IFA on the National Economic and Social Council and served as the organisation’s liaison officer with Government on Social Partnership.
