Beyond Brexit: The future of UK Trade Policy
Thursday 27 April 18:30 until 20:30
UK : Hoare Memorial Hall, Church House, Great Smith Street, London, SW1P 3AZ
Speaker: Panel Discussion
Trade policy affects our everyday lives, from the food we buy, to the jobs we have, to the environment. Since Brexit gave the UK autonomy over its trade policy, the UK has been transforming its trade relationships. It has a new, much more limited trade agreement with the EU, is undertaking trade negotiations with new countries, and is looking to have closer trade relationships with countries in Asia-Pacific. But what does all this activity add up to, and what does it tell us about the UK’s evolving role in the world?
Join our experienced panel of members from the UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO)* and Research Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP)** to answer your questions on the future of British trade. If you have any questions you would like to submit in advance please send these to email@example.com.

*The UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO) was founded on the eve of Brexit, as a partnership between the University of Sussex and Chatham House, and has since become a ‘go-to’ place for UK trade policy research and analysis.
**More recently, Sussex has received funding for a new, £12 million pound Research Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP), which comprises academics and external partners including Government departments across all four UK nations.
