ICSA welcomes Barnier appointment

ICSA president Patrick Kent has welcomed the appointment of French politician Michel Barnier as chief negotiator for Brexit on behalf of the European Commission. Mr Barnier is a former French Minister for Agriculture and an EU Commissioner. According to the ICSA president, the appointment is a welcome development for Ireland in view of the fact that Mr Barnier is very familiar with the issues relevant to Ireland from his positions as EU Commissioner, as a Minister for Agriculture and as an MEP.
