PFMA's Brexit Manifesto
Under the banner ‘A Brave New World: Opportunities and Priorities’, PFMA published the Brexit Manifesto, the day after the Prime Minister’s Article 50 letter was delivered to Brussels. Our publication was very timely and was delivered at the PFMA AGM, alongside a lively debate on agriculture and international trade.
