The Trade and Agriculture Commission is an independent advisory board. Whilst the Department for International Trade provides logistical and technical support to these events through its Secretariat, these events are run by the Commission, and are led by its Chair, Tim Smith.

On behalf of the Commission I can inform that since 5 October 2020 it has held 7 stakeholder forum events with industry experts, farmers, agri-food business, local food producers and MPs. These events include:

  • 2 roundtables with industry experts on the themes of animal welfare and the environment
  • 5 evidence gathering sessions with English regions and Devolved Administrations: South West of England, East of England, London & the South East, Northern Ireland and Wales

These events are part of a programme of stakeholder engagement activities the Commission is carrying out to help inform its work.
