Seven Brexit lessons for UK agriculture from New Zealand

New Zealand high commissioner Sir Lockwood Smith has outlined seven lessons for British agriculture as the UK prepares to leave the European Union.

Much like the situation faced by the UK now, New Zealand overhauled its agricultural policy – including the abolition of its subsidy system – in the 1980s.

Sir Lockwood delivered a lecture on “Farming, International Trade and Brexit – A New Zealand Perspective” at Harper Adams University, Shropshire, on Tuesday, 7 March.

During the lecture, he examined how New Zealand has turned around its economy over the last 30 years and outlined seven lessons for the UK.
