A one-day conference examining the implications of UK trade arrangements outside of the EU for tariffs, market access and the harmonisation of standards and regulations.The goal is not to argue for or against any particular choice, but rather to help participants gain a better understanding of their economic costs and benefits.
The audience will be a mix of researchers, policy and political advisers, journalists, public servants and practitioners from the private sector. The conference will take place under the Chatham House rule: no attributed contributions without the express permission of the person named.
