What will be the effect of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU on its trading relationship with the EU and on the multiplicity of international treaties and agreements with other countries that flow from the UK’s EU membership? 

Focusing on trade agreements in particular, the meeting will consider the rights and obligations that will continue to apply, or that will need to be renegotiated with other states, with the EU itself and other trading blocs, and will reflect on the UK’s negotiating power and on the kind of trading nation that the UK will become, as well as the effect of the future US presidency on the network of trade agreements.

This meeting is being held in partnership with Clifford Chance LLP and will be followed by a drinks reception.
