WIG Conference: International Trade

As negotiations between the UK Government and the EU move into the next phase, the need for dialogue between business and government is at an all-time high. Join us on Friday 16 March 2018, as we explore the future of British international trade; examining the trading opportunities within and beyond the EU, the impact of new borders and customs, and the legal implications for businesses both during the transitional period and after.

This one-day conference will bring together key decision makers from across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, with considerable opportunity for Q&A with speakers.
