What's On

The United Kingdom is currently in a transition period while it finalizes the details of its exit from the European Union on 31 December. In the meantime, the U.K. has been actively discussing new trade deals around the world as it gets ready for its eventual exit from the E.U. trading bloc. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, negotiations for agreements with the country's major trading partners, such as the E.U. and the United States, have begun.

Businesses and investors globally are keen to see a final Brexit deal reached to remove the current uncertainty, but relations between the E.U. and U.K. are still unsettled while the terms for Britain's departure remain to be decided. What will be the consequences for the U.K. if negotiators fail to come to an agreement by the deadline?

Will there be any changes to the list of the U.K.'s key trading partners once Brexit kicks in? Will the country find new trading partners after it leaves the E.U.?

We have three excellent speakers for this webinar, organized by the Chamber's Europe Committee. Paul McComb, Director General Trade & Investment at the Department for International Trade of the British Consulate-General Hong Kong, will share the U.K. Government's plans to seal new deals with its long-established trade partners and resolve its relationship with the E.U.

Eva Valle Lagares, Head of Trade Section of the E.U. Office to Hong Kong & Macao, will explain the E.U.'s hopes for the Brexit deal and the latest developments in the negotiations.

Louis Chan, Assistant Principal Economist (Global Research) of the Hong Kong Trade and Development Council, will give an overview of the U.K.'s current status and consider the impact of Brexit on its trading relationships.

Register for this webinar to get better prepared for doing business with the U.K. and Europe after Brexit.
