On the Thursday 12th March 2015, Gorwel held a joint event with the European Commission, Grayling Public Affairs and European Movement UK. It was there to discuss the key EU priorities identified by Jean-Claude Juncker and how they could affect Wales.

The discussion was led by David Melding AM – President of Gorwel, and included a panel comprised of Laura Sandys MP – Chair of the European Movement, Wayne David MP – Former Shadow Minister for Europe and PPS to the Rt Hon Ed Miliband, Iestyn Davies – Head of external affairs at the FSB, and David Hughes – Head of the European Commission in Wales.

There was an extensive discussion around the issues and the need to engage Wales at the heart of the EU priorities and try to avoid the failures of the past with respect to EU funding.
