Reports on Brexit
The Council of Ministers issued two reports in the run-up to the referendum on the potential effects of the UK's withdrawal from the European Union on the Isle of Man and has since issued a further two reports.
Ahead of the outcome of the referendum the first report, published in April 2016, assessed the impact on the Island if the UK were to leave the EU, and the second, of June 2016, looked in more detail at the possible alternatives to membership which the UK and the Isle of Man may choose to pursue.
Following the result of the referendum, the third report was published in December 2016 and provided updated information on the withdrawal process and analysis of the potential impact of Brexit for the Isle of Man. The fourth report, published April 2017, provides an update on the Isle of Man Government's ongoing work in preparation for the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.
In March 2021, the Council of Ministers issued a report reflecting on the process of the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, the negotiations carried out and the future of the Island's international trade relations.
