A joint submission by The Freedom Association and the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), one of the leading free-market policy institutes in the United States of America, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Brexit Prize.

The winner of the €100,000 prize, run by The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), will be announced in February for the best plan to leave the EU and create a more prosperous and free United Kingdom.

Submissions were invited from individuals, groups of individuals, academia and corporate bodies such as consultancy firms, law firms, accounting firms, think-tanks and investment banks. The competition’s judging panel, Chaired by The Rt. Hon Lord Lawson of Blaby, former Chancellor of the Exchequer, chose the 20 best submissions for the final round.

Rory Broomfield, Deputy Director of The Freedom Association and Director of the Better Off Out campaign, commented:

“We are delighted that our joint submission with the Competitive Enterprise Institute has been shortlisted for this prestigious prize. It is a fantastic opportunity to put our case for how the UK would be Better Off Out and I look forward to working with our friends at the CEI to design a detailed plan that could help policy-makers realise a more prosperous UK outside the EU.”
