As the UK rolls out its independent trade policy following departure from the EU, its successive governments will need to ensure its benefits are widely spread and its international trade agreements enjoy broad support. Most trading powers have a system of ‘stakeholder engagement’ in place that seeks input from business and civil society.
How is Britain’s trade policy engagement shaping up and what steps are needed to make Britain’s trade policy work for all? What lessons can we learn from other countries’ experiences? The UK Trade Forum is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on how to ensure UK trade policy enjoys broad support.
When: Tuesday 8 May 2018 – 17:30 – 19:30
Where: DP World – 16 Palace Street – London -SW1E 5JQ
