About this Event

As a result of the decision to leave the EU, the UK will be developing its own independent trade policy for the first time in over 40 years.

The symposium aims to build and share knowledge on the new trade policy environment and its potential implications for health and well-being in Wales. A range of experts in public health and trade will share their insights, and the day will help build capacity and networks for engagement in this key policy area for a “Healthier Wales”.Audience: Policy makers, academics, public sector leaders, third sector, public health specialists, NHS, trade unions.

Fel canlyniad y penderfyniad i adael yr UE, bydd y DU yn datblygu polisi masnach annibynnol ei hun am y tro cyntaf mewn 40 mlynedd. Mae goblygiadau yn sgil hynny ar gyfer amrywiaeth o benderfynyddion iechyd a lles yng Nghymru: o safonau bwyd i ddiogelu’r amgylchedd; o reolau alcohol a baco i amgylchiadau gwaith.

Cynllunnir y symposiwm hwn er mwyn adeiladu a rhannu gwybodaeth ar yr amgylchedd polisi masnach newydd a’i oblygiadau potensial ar gyfer iechyd a lles yng Nghymru. Bydd amrywiaeth o arbenigwyr iechyd cyhoeddus a masnach yn rhannu eu mewnweliadau, a bydd y dyddiad hefyd yn adeiladu capasiti a rhwydweithiau ar gyfer cysylltu yn y maes polisi hwn sy’n allweddol i iechyd.

Cynulleidfa: llunwyr polisi, academyddion, arweinwyr sector cyhoeddus, trydydd sector, arbenigwyr iechyd cyhoeddus, GIG, undebau llafur.
