What We Do


The UK decision to exit the EU will have direct and profound impact on many key policy and operational areas across DBEI and its Agencies.

DBEI is at the heart of Government preparations and planning for Brexit:

  • Deepening analysis of impacts and implications and identifying what we need to do to minimise risks and maximise opportunities;

  • Communicating with stakeholders to share information and validate analysis undertaken;

  • Engaging at official and Ministerial level with EU counterparts to make clear the unique position of Ireland in the context of negotiations.

The Brexit Unit is responsible for supporting the Ministers and Management Board in ensuring a coordinated and coherent approach to Brexit across the Department. This includes engaging with stakeholders and we are happy to receive submissions regarding impacts and implications of Brexit that you consider relevant to our remit - you can email brexitunit@dbei.gov.ie.
