The Post-Brexit UK Trade Policy Summit | EEF

The PostBrexit UK Trade Policy Summit

EEF is partnering with City & Financial Global for this event at which Terry Scuoler, CEO, will join an exceptionally strong panel.

The future of the UK’s trading relationship with the EU27 and the rest of world is the number one item on the boardroom agenda of businesses across the UK.

This event will assist companies with their planning and decision-making.

An impressive array of top experts will guide delegates through the key issues, including:

  • Structuring BREXIT to maximise trade benefits and enhance the UK’s participation in the global value chain;

  • Transition: What will a transitional agreement for the UK look like?

  • How will the customs arrangements work through the transition period and beyond?

  • What sort of comprehensive transition arrangements are possible for services? 

  • Towards an independent UK trade policy that works for business - a new EU partnership: what are the alternatives to single market membership?  

  • Implications “Hard Brexit” for trade in (a) goods and (b) services and what are the challenges and applicable WTO rules?

  • The Government’s vision of a Global Britain: making allies and forging new trade relationships with other developed and developing countries

  • Making a success of Brexit: what business needs to make it work
