You are invited to join our discussion on the future of the UK trade policy.
Seven years on from the Brexit vote, the UK is struggling to define its trade policy beyond a handful of Free Trade Agreements which don’t seem well suited to its services strengths. Against economic troubles and a global backdrop of major powers threatening global trade rules, what should the UK do next?
This event will draw upon the recent ECIPE paper ‘Building a Mature UK Trade Policy‘, while also providing a UK political perspective, and a view from New Zealand, a country similarly facing the challenges of the post-FTA trade policy. This event will hold relevance for policy makers in different countries thinking about the future of trade.
