Description

Following the EU referendum result, the UK will soon be in a position to define its own international trade policy. This has implications for the UK, the EU and globally, including for developing countries.

This event explores what approach the UK could take and how the UK government can best use this opportunity to forge new and upgrade existing trade deals.

It also discusses how the UK’s new trade policy can support the interests of both the UK and developing countries that rely on their trading relationships with the UK to support their economic progress.

You do not need to register to attend this event – anyone at the Conservative Party Conference is welcome to join this discussion. If you have any questions, please contact Hanna Nomm on [email protected]
