Junta creates working group for ‘Brexit’
La Junta de Andalucia is to create a working group to analyze and minimize the effects of Brexit. The junta had agreed to create a working group in order to carry out its own assessment and make a full analysis of consequences Brexit could have on Andalucia. Its aim is to propose what action to take whilst assessing the impact the process of withdrawal would have. The working group is expected to be co-ordinated by the Vice President of the Junta and will consist of those in authority heading the economy, employment, business and commerce, agriculture, fisheries, tourism and sport.
