Brexit opportunities for fishing industry

In my capacity as a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group for the Faroe Islands, today I met Poul Michelson the country's Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The Islands were one of the key areas for Grimsby trawlers in the hay day of the fishing industry.

Mr Michelson welcomes Britain's exit from the EU, recognising the opportunities to extend trade post-Brexit and spoke of his desire to rekindle the relationship we had before our membership of the EU.

The Faroe Islands stand ready to play a full part in ensuring that North East Lincolnshire benefits from the economic ties we share.
