Trade and International Affairs

Trade and international affairs

We bring the sectors together to collaborate on the UK’s role and relations on the global stage; across trade, international affairs, and defence.

In the international arena, the UK is strengthening its’ role on the world stage, in the face of rising threats from state and non-state actors. Simultaneously, following the exit from the EU, the focus is now on establishing an independent trade policy.

Geopolitical threats and trade policy require dialogue between central government, businesses, higher education and charities. The Global Britain agenda, and the implementation of the integrated review, can only happen effectively with input from key stakeholders across the economy.

WIG’s discussions and content under our Trade and International Affairs theme offer a trusted space for open and honest dialogue focussing on:

  • Brexit and EU relations
  • International trade
  • International affairs
  • Defence and security

Each area is comprehensively researched with ideas gathered from our members and the trade and international affairs advisory council.
