Trading places: Brexit on the world trade scene
This episode was first broadcast as a webinar on 11 June 2018.
With the talks on the UK's future trading relationship with the EU finally underway, please join us to where we'll examine Brexit from the perspective of international trade law. We start in Brussels with an analysis of the UK Government's trade proposals, asking, for example, what is the difference between the UK Government's proposed 'customs partnership' and 'max fac' solutions and how would they work in practice for economic operators? We then head to Geneva, where the UK and EU negotiations with other WTO members about their post-Brexit commitments have faced criticism from other WTO members. And, after that, Washington where we look at the prospect of a post-Brexit US/UK trade agreement and consider what type of deal we might expect there. Finally, we talk you through some real-life scenarios and how changes in UK trade policy may affect businesses in different sectors at home and abroad.
