Abstract

The Economic Impacts of Brexit on the UK, its Sectors, its Cities and its Regions

What are the economic impacts of Brexit on the UK's sectors, regions and cities?

The findings from our recent research suggest that the UK's cities and regions which voted for Brexit are also the most economically dependent on EU markets for their prosperity and viability. This is a result of their differing sectoral and trade composition. Different impacts are likely for different sectors, and also different impacts are likely between sectors, and these relationships also differ across the country's regions. Some sectors, some regions and some cities will be more sensitive and susceptible to any changes in UK-EU trade relations which may arise from Brexit than others and their long-run competiveness positions will be less robust and more vulnerable than others. This suggests that these sectoral and regional differences need to be very carefully taken into account in the context of the national UK-EU negotiations in order for the post-Brexit agreements to be politically, socially as well as economically sustainable across the country.

This project aims to examine in detail the likely impacts of Brexit on the UK's sectors, regions and cities by using the most detailed regional-national-international trade and competition datasets currently available anywhere in the world (and the people who built these data). These two datasets, are the 2016 WIOD World Input-Output Database and the 2016 UK Interregional Trade Datasets developed respectively by the University of Groningen and by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. WIOD covers 43 countries, 56 sectors and 15 years of trade-GDP-demand relationships, while the EU Interregional Tables covers 59 sectors and 240 EU regions. The quantitative research will allow us to understand the role in shaping UK regional trade behaviour which is played by global value-chains, whereby goods and services crisscross borders multiple times before being finally consumed by household and firms. The UK is heavily integrated with the rest of the EU via such global value-chains and reshaping the future post-Brexit UK trade arrangements with the EU will also involve reconfiguring these global value-chains. Our data allows us to examine the impacts of different trade scenarios and to map out the sensitivity of UK sectors and regions to different post-Brexit scenarios. Brexit will also reshape the national and international competiveness rankings of the UK regions and again our data allows us to examine the likely long run changes which will arise.

At the same time, these changes will also all have profound implications for the design and governance of UK city and regional development policy logic and settings. However, the withdrawal of EU Cohesion Funds, alongside changing UK-EU trade relationships means that both the economic and the public policy environment facing local regions will shift significantly. The ongoing UK devolution agenda at the level of both the three devolved national administrations as well as the English city-regions will be heavily affected by the changing external environment and our project will identify the governance, policy and institutional options which key stakeholders perceive to offer the greatest possibilities for adjusting to the new realities. Our quantitative research will therefore also be undertaken in parallel with qualitative research based on key stakeholder engagement sessions. Participatory workshops with city, regional and national stakeholders will be organised in order to develop alternative post-Brexit scenarios for empirical analysis as perceived by the city and regional as well as national institutions. The mix of quantitative and qualitative approaches will allow us to identity the impacts of Brexit at the crucial meso-levels of the individual sectors, the individual cities and the individual regions.

Planned Impact

The pathways to impact of this project are built into the very logic of the project, which is designed as a co-learning project between the analytical team and stakeholders operating at the levels of UK cities and regions, as well as in central government. Our project is based heavily on interaction and engagement with key stakeholders, mixing qualitative arguments and insights with quantitative analyses. The beneficiaries of this project will be central government policy makers and trade negotiators, city-regional authorities and policy-makers, members of the devolved administrations, and advocacy organisations representing different UK industries and regions.

The project is designed to elicit the Brexit and post-Brexit ideas, views, concerns and opportunities of local actors as perceived from the vantage point of regional and city stakeholders. The workshops will be organised in conjunction with our institutional partners to ensure that the perspectives and views from the regions are embedded in both our national-sectoral and regional-sectoral analyses rights from the start of the project. The different ideas arising from the experience and priorities of the city and regional stakeholders will then be tested empirically. We will feedback the results of our analyses to the project participants to get their interpretations of our empirical findings, and then wherever possible the models will be re-run and re-estimated on the basis of their feedback.

The data at our disposal, which is the best currently available anywhere in the word, is not currently available to UK regional or city authorities, and even UK central government authorities at present do not have the detailed knowledge or experience skills to use the data. However, the participatory workshop participants, most of whom will be outside of the academic world, as well as the central and local government authorities, will be the key end users of both our interim and final project outputs. Our work therefore provides immediate benefits to different tiers of government and to institutional stakeholders across the UK governance system, as well as to private sector and civil society organisations involved in our workshops.

The impacts of the project will be generated via three major forms. Firstly, our data-based scenario-sensitivity trade-GDP analysis along with our trade-specialisation-competitiveness analysis will allow government central government analysts and trade-negotiators to understand the likely range of the expected GDP and local wage-income outcomes of their various proposals and choices across different UK sectors, regions and cities, as well as the longer term impacts on competiveness on different UK regions.

Secondly, we will be able to translate the complex empirical and analytical insights into diagrammatic and tabular formats which are amenable to policy makers and negotiators as well as to the wider public, without in any way compromising the quality of the analysis. This will help with discussions and scenario-building exercises, and also with the wider dissemination of the project findings to broader non-academic audiences.

Thirdly, the exchange of stakeholder ideas, insights and concerns, and the associated empirical analyses which are generated by the discussions in our participatory workshops, will facilitate a wider 'learning journey' whereby different industry and regional stakeholders will come to a greater understanding of the likely effects of Brexit on their communities and also their potential opportunities for traversing the likely changes to be engendered by Brexit.

By combining the best quantitative sources of evidence and analysis with the best qualitative sources of ideas, evidence and insights, we will be able to provide the most robust, detailed and extensive analysis of the likely impacts of Brexit on the UK's sectors, regions and cities.

Description Our research studies the degree to which EU regions and countries are exposed to negative trade-related consequences of Brexit, via an analysis of the nature and scale of their trade relationships. We quantify the shares of regional and national GDP and labor income (in the EU and in the UK) that are at risk due to Brexit. Our results show:
• 2.64% of EU GDP is at risk because of Brexit negative trade related consequences.
• In the UK, the Brexit trade related consequences account for 12.2% of its GDP.
• Adverse effects are likely to be more severe in the regions which have the least ability to respond to adverse shocks including: many of the UK's economically weaker regions, with lower levels of diversity, skills and connectivity, including regions that voted to leave the EU such as the UK's non-core regions in the Midlands and in the North of England.
• London and northern Scottish regions have exposure levels which are much lower, although they are still higher than for regions outside the UK.
• These profound differences in regional resilience, allied with a likely pattern of Brexit-related shocks which will more adversely impact on the weaker regions, implies that the post-Brexit UK economy will be one of even greater interregional imbalances.

In our sectoral analysis an industry's exposure to Brexit is defined as its value added - embodied in a product or service - that crosses a UK-EU border at least once. Exposure levels indicate how much the industry has to restructure its supply chains (by re-shoring stages of production and exploiting non-EU markets, for example) in order to mitigate the value added and employment losses due to reduced post-Brexit trade with the EU. The results from our analysis of 54 UK sectors show that in 15 out of 54 industries:
• More than 20% (and up to 36%) of economic activity is at risk from Brexit, in industries such as fisheries, chemicals and motor vehicle manufacturing.
• The industries which face the severest risks and which are likely to be the hardest hit by a 'no deal' Brexit are services industries, including professional, scientific, administrative and technical services.
• Other high-risk exposure industries include the wholesale trades, legal and accounting services, retail trade, warehousing, land transport services, computer programming, and activities auxiliary to financial services. Importantly, these are all industries which are dissipated across the wider economy and have very little structured lobbying power or media profiles.

In our work on the Interregional Inequalities and UK Sub-National Governance Responses to Brexit, based on a comprehensive review of initiatives that UK sub-national governance bodies have initiated in preparation for Brexit, we discuss the various potential impacts of Brexit on UK regions and outline the sub-national governance challenges raised by them. The evidence show:
• The UK sub-national institutional system is largely unprepared for the post-Brexit realities.
• The vast majority of evidence suggests that Brexit is likely to make the UK's interregional inequalities worse than they already are, with many Leave-voting regions being especially vulnerable.
• Although recently there have been some very tentative steps towards a more place-based governance system, the UK's highly centralised and top-down governance system would seem to be uniquely ill-equipped to deal with these eventualities.
• Moreover, these inabilities are currently exacerbated by Brexit which is leading to both further governance centralisation and also the stalling of many policy arenas, including regional economic development.
• The many observed Brexit-related initiatives and activities are largely ad hoc and uncoordinated between localities, reflecting the widespread policy paralysis evident in the UK institutional system.

Description The impact of this research rests on two components that make it unique among other analyses of the economic impacts of Brexit: - It analyses the effect of Brexit at the sub-national level in the UK but also (uniquely) in all the other EU (non-UK) regions as well. Therefore potential reach of the impact goes beyond the UK border and encompasses policy makers, businesses and (potentially) public opinion. As yet there is almost no regional, city or local component to Brexit discussions, except regarding the City of London and the devolved administrations, even though the impacts are likely to be very different in different parts of the UK. This research brings the analysis of Brexit to these city, regional and local levels. - It uses a unique set of data the latest releases of World Input-Output data and their novel extension at the regional level and with occupational data for the first time. These data allow us to consider the deep engagement of UK firms in cross-border global value-chains (GVCs) which involve widespread re-exporting and re-importing means that most of the effects of Brexit on the UK economy cannot be understood by observing simple trade statistics or by discussions regarding UK-EU trade surpluses or deficits. Only the techniques we employ can tell us these things. - The analysis uses a larger sectoral disaggregation (56 sectors) than any other similar analyses produced on the impact of Brexit at the sectoral level. This granularity that we can offer is relevant to sectors that feel that do not have too much presence in the current Brexit negotiations (e.g. the role of services).

This granularity that we can offer is relevant to sectors that feel that do not have too much presence in the current Brexit negotiations (e.g. the role of services). - The analysis uses an occupational disaggregation to analyse the impact of Brexit on different occupational groups. - The analysis uses qualitatitative information coming from primary data source, collected in our 5 stakeholder workshops (Edinburg, Leeds, London, Birmingham, Brussels) Working alongside the project's institutional partners, namely the Local Growth Analysis team at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS); Scottish Government, Economic Policy Unit; Policy Scotland; the Centre for Cities; ResPublica; IPPR North we are ensuring that we have the best access possible to all of the key city and regional stakeholders across the country for our participatory workshops, as well as the national government institutions focused on city and regional issues. Apart for the partners which supported the project, other collaborations have been put in place such as the one with the EU Committee of the Regions. Four regional stakeholder workshops are being planned: West Midlands (Birmingham); Greater London (City of London); North of England (Leeds) and the Devolved Administrations (Scotland). These were run through the spring of 2018. Young post-doc researchers at City-REDI are playing a key part in designing and convening these workshops while more experienced UoB staff were involved also. Final open conference at the EU Commitee of the Regions took place in February of 2019 with more than 140 persons registered. Two special events at the Annual Party Conferences of the Conservative and Labour Parties allow to spread the results of the project on the MPs and other members ot the Conservative and Labour Party. The activities of the project have and are supported by the ESRC umbrella initiative The UK in a Changing Europe. We have contributed to many reports and blogs and participating in several events at the Houses of Parliament, Foreign Commonwealth Office, Northern Ireland Government, etc. Among them: Cost of No Deal Revisited. Sectoral and Regional Consequences, The UK in a Changing Europe Brexit and the island of Ireland, The UK in a Changing Europe • Brexit: local and devolved government, The UK in a Changing Europe, 8 March 2018 • EU Referendum: One year on, The UK in a Changing Europe and Political Studies Association • The continental divide? economic exposure to Brexit in regions and countries on both sides of the Channel, The UK in a Changing Europe Blog, 24 November 2017 • Annual Northern Ireland Economic Conference 2017, presenting the first results of the Brexit project on Wednesday 25th of October in Armagh City, Northern Ireland, UK. • Houses of Parliament ESRC Brexit Research for Policy event, Monday 30th October 2017 at Portcullis House, Westminster, London, UK. • Foreign Commonwealth Office presentation: The regional effects of Brexit, 6th December 2017. • Brexit and Trade conference, The British Academy, Carlton House Terrace, London, United Kingdom, 02 November 2017 The research topic cuts across several academic fields and the literature built on to develop the research derives from each of these different disciplines. The nature of the issues examined are too broad to be analysed using a single research methodology, so the research draws ideas and insights from different arenas. The mix of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies employed reflects the different emphases and traditions motivating the research approach. The Academic beneficiaries are researchers working in the fields of regional and urban economic development, human geography, industrial policy, international economics, governance and political science. The research has been presented at various conferences: European Regional Science Association Meeting (Groningen, August 2017 and Cork, August 2018); North American Regional Science Association Meeting (Vancouver, November 2017 and San Antonio, November 2018); Regional Studies Association Winter Conference (London, December 2017 and December 2018); Academy of International Business (Birmingham, September 2018) and at the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences at the REP (Birmingham, November 2018). In seminars, at the University of Birmingham (Department of Economics, February 2018), Manchester Business School (February, 2018), University of Leeds (December 2018). The results of the project have been presented at the European Parliament, European Committee of the Regions, UK Parliament, UK Treasury, UK Foreign Commonwealth Office, UK Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, among many academic forums and conferences.

Moreover, this conclusion holds largely irrespective of the eventual form of Brexit. The reason is that the UK's economically weaker regions, especially in the Midlands and the North of England, are more exposed to Brexit trade-related risks because they tend to be much more dependent on EU markets for their prosperity than the UK's richer regions."

Impact Our analysis presents an opportunity for sub-national government to have some empirical evidence to lobbying during the negotiation processes. Our analysis shows that the economic impact of Brexit will affect differently different part of the UK and some MPs from the most affected geographical areas are using our results to be able to provide some impact. Our analysis is changing the perception that London and Financial Services are the geographical area and sector that are going to be more affected by offering a higher granularity of the case.

Results and Impact An Assessment of Brexit Risks for 54 Industries: Most Services Industries are also Exposed. Prof Bart Los, Wen Chen, Prof. Raquel Ortega Argiles, Prof. Philip McCann reflect on their results on the sectoral assessment of the Brexit impact. The link leads to City-REDI policy briefing) for the 'jobs at risk' index suggest that in the UK as a whole, more than 2.5 million jobs are exposed to the trade effects of Brexit. Annually, almost £140 billion pounds of UK economic activity is directly at risk because of Brexit. Many important manufacturing and primary sectors are highly exposed to Brexit, but so are many services. These services are not only exported directly to EU countries but also sell intensively within domestic supply chains to UK manufacturing exporting to the EU. For 15 sectors, more than 20% of jobs and value added are at risk.

Results and Impact Analyses of the impact of various types of Brexit at the national level hide a lot of regional economic heterogeneity. This column deploys a new interregional dataset to quantify the shares of regional labour income that are exposed to the implications of Brexit for trade, taking into account the indirect effects of supply chain relations. The results show that much more is at stake for UK regions than for the rest of the EU, with the exception of Ireland.

Results and Impact With the Conservative Party Conference once again taking place in Birmingham, City-REDI held a fringe event on 'overcoming the challenges of Brexit at local level' on the 2nd of October. The discussions were around what the impact of leaving the EU will be on public policy, city regions, housing and jobs. On the panel we had:

Andrew Carter, Chief Executive, Centre for Cities
Professor Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs at King's College London and Director of the ESRC funded UK in a Changing Europe initiative
Professor Raquel Ortega-Argilés, Professor of Regional Economic Development, City-REDI
Professor Anne Green, Professor of Regional Economic Development, City-REDI
Jeremy Lefroy MP, MP for Stafford and Member of the Exiting the EU Select Committee
Professor Simon Collinson, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Regional Economic Engagement at the University of Birmingham and Director of City-REDI
Andrew Carter from the Centre for Cities spoke about how the UK's urban areas are heavily exposed to EU trade, with half of exports going to the bloc versus only around 15% to the USA. Furthermore, he talked about how highly centralised policymaking power is in Westminster, which is something Jeremy Lefroy seconded, commenting that the UK is 'unbelievably centralised' and that this needs to be overcome. Professor Menon called the Brexit vote a 'wake-up call' for the regional problems that have existed for a long time in the UK, but the work needed for Brexit is taking place in a very divided country and is consuming all of the government's time and attention. He added that 'however we do Brexit, our economy will be smaller than it would have been had we stayed in'.

Professor Ortega-Argilés discussed her work on the impact of Brexit upon the UK's regions and sectors. She stated that the regional policy debate around Brexit has been under played and that more than 20% of economic activity in the UK is at risk. There is no national response to regional effects which is why the work being done by City-REDI to map out the implications of Brexit on the sectors and supply chains of the British economy is so important.

Results and Impact Sectors such as professional, technical, or scientific occupations, legal services, computer programming, and architecture, are far more exposed to Brexit in both relative and absolute terms than the types of sectors which are typically discussed in the media, such as the financial markets. In fact, the financial services industry is less exposed to Brexit-related-trade shocks because it caters to many British clients elsewhere in the UK and a substantial part of its exports have non-EU countries as their destination. Additionally, the London economy is very large, thus produces a large part of its output for local use; it is the part of the UK economy which is the least dependent on the EU for its prosperity. Consequently, in comparison to other regions across the UK, London is less sensitive and susceptible to changes in UK-EU trade relations which may arise from Brexit. Nevertheless, adverse effects are likely to be more severe in the regions which have the least ability to respond to adverse shocks. Therefore, it is crucial that political and business leaders are well informed to be able to successfully adjust and adapt their economies.

Our London Brexit Workshop aimed to bring together political and business leaders, together with academics and civil society organisations to discuss the likely impact of Brexit on London economy and to agree on the urgent actions that need to be taken in the crucial months ahead.

Raquel Ortega-Argiles, University of Birmingham - The Continental Divide? Economic Exposure to Brexit in Regions and Countries on Both Sides of the Channel

In this paper we employ the EU interregional extensions to the World Input-Output Database WIOD in order to assess the Brexit trade-related risks exposure of EU regions and member states. We develop an index of Brexit trade-related risks which reflects all of the complex global value chain patterns evident in UK-EU trade. Our findings demonstrate that UK regions are far more exposed than regions in other countries. Only the Republic of Ireland faces exposure levels similar to UK regions while the next most affected regions are in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and France, in descending order. There is a significant imbalance in Brexit trade-related risks between the UK and the rest of Europe, and this imbalance may influence the outcomes of the negotiations between the UK and the EU.

Raquel Ortega-Argilés holds the Chair in Regional Economic Development at the department of Strategy and International Business and the City-REDI research institute at Birmingham Business School, The University of Birmingham, UK. Her current research work focuses Productivity,

Innovation, Regional development, SMEs, entrepreneurship and industrial dynamics and on regional and European Policy.

Results and Impact How Brexit will hit different UK regions and industries, The very areas of the UK which voted Leave in June 2016 are likely to be the ones hardest hit by Brexit. Our research on the likely economic consequences of leaving the European Union on different regions and industries is consistent with the recently leaked government analysis which suggests that London will be one of the areas least hit in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The north-east of England, meanwhile, will be one of the worst affected. Diffusion of our research in a non-academic media outlet to reach general public. The article was published on the 9th of February 2018 see URL below

Results and Impact This workshop aims to bring together political and business leaders, together with academics and civil society organisations to discuss the likely impact of Brexit on European regions. During the workshop we will share findings from our ESRC funded Brexit project[1] on the likely impacts of Brexit on the Europe's sectors, regions, and cities. Our analysis draws upon the most detailed regional-national-international trade and competition datasets currently available anywhere in the world, allowing us to examine the impacts of different post-Brexit trade scenarios on European regions. Our results identify a very noticeable patterns to the levels of exposure across Europe with northwestern European regions typically being the most exposed to Brexit, while regions in southern and eastern Europe are barely affected at all by Brexit, at least in terms of the trade linkages. The workshop will also provide a platform for city, regional and national stakeholders to share their own regional-specific research findings and collaborate with us on developing alternative post-Brexit scenarios, considering both what city-regional authorities want and also what policy responses are likely to be most effective.
