Relationship with Europe
- ALBA believes that Scotland should join EFTA immediately after the Scottish Parliament acquires the competence to sign international treaties and the powers to abide by them. This will allow Scotland to gain access to the European Economic Area and effective free trade with the EU, thus mitigating the negative effects of Brexit.
This policy has been voted on during the ALBA Party Inaugural Conference in September 2021 and has been discussed extensively in ALBA's second National Assembly, which can be viewed here:
