The UK and global prosperity: breaking the barriers to trade

Join British Chambers of Commerce‘s Director General Shevaun Haviland, in discussion with The Economist.

Topics covered in the webinar will include the current trade barriers in the UK business environment and what new roadblocks are emerging, as well as how digital trends in global trade will create opportunities.

The event will explore how the power of financial flows can be harnessed for SMEs to bridge the trade finance gap and how businesses can build resilience in their supply chains.

Some of the key questions discussed will include:

  • What characteristics distinguish trade in the new post-Brexit and post-pandemic world?
  • What are the current trends in cross-border relations? How will opportunities be harnessed in the Indo-Pacific region?
  • How can businesses exploit the opportunities of international trade? For future growth, how will businesses further build resilience during disruption and improve governance of existing operations?
  • How can the right finance and insurance be provided?
  • How can the power of capital investment and financial flows be harnessed for SMEs to foster greater levels of collaboration and innovation?
  • What trade barriers still exist in the UK business environment, and what improvements can benefit businesses?
