Abstract

In the 2016 referendum of June 23, the people of Kent voted decisively by 59% to 41% to leave the European Union. Brexit is the future, and Kent and Medway are now at the forefront of the debate on the opportunities and changes that lie ahead for the UK, as we plan for a successful future outside the European Union.

This report sets out how Brexit could unfold across the key sectors of Kent and Medway. It is also of course only an initial snapshot, as our work will continue throughout 2017 to understand the issues and identify the opportunities. We want to support an open and objective debate on the ways in which national government and regional leaders can work together to deliver a successful future for everyone across the whole of Kent and Medway.

The report has benefited from contributions, comments and suggestions from a wide range of stakeholders across and beyond the county. From May 2016 onwards, we have worked to distil this wealth of material into a balanced and accessible document with the aim of stimulating debate and enhancing insights on this most complex of contemporary issues. While we believe that the information here has been sourced accurately and objectively from those many contributors, the use and understanding of the material is that of the authors.
