The Benefits of Brexit - How the UK is taking advantage of leaving the EU

Published 9th Feb 2022 by MY Export Hub

There are a great many benefits to Brexit: control of our democracy, borders and waters; control of our own money, helping us to level up across the country; the freedom to regulate in a more proportionate and agile way that works for our great British businesses; benefits for people that put money back in their pockets, improve their rights and choices as consumers and give them access to better healthcare; the ability to shape a better environment as we achieve net zero by 2050; enhanced welfare standards for our animals; and a Britain that is truly global once again, with its own seat in international fora, reaching out and agreeing new trade deals and strategic partnerships.

The first section of this document sets out some of our achievements so far in these areas, the control we have gained and implemented, the laws we have changed or are in the process of changing, the further reviews of laws and policies influenced by our EU membership that we have started, the trade agreements and partnerships we have struck and are negotiating and the ways in which we have shifted our perspective from an EU-centric one to a global one.

The second section sets out how we will reform our better regulation system, review the duties of some of our regulators and review retained EU law to give us the best platform to capitalise on our regulatory freedoms for the long term. Now is also the right moment to change how we regulate, having consulted last year on changes to our Better Regulation Framework. We need the right framework to regulate for the future of our economy in an agile way and to ensure we are diverging strategically from retained EU law.

The third section sets out our vision statements for the future of policy areas, processes and sectors where we are changing our approach owing to Brexit, in the areas of: science, data and technology; business and industry; infrastructure and levelling up; climate, the environment and agriculture; and a Global Britain. This is not an exhaustive list of everything we are doing or will do in these policy areas. More detail is provided in the various strategies, green and white papers and other policy announcements the Government has made.
