We have heard much from powerful business groups and institutions keen to protect their relationships with the EU and its protected markets. Yet Global Free Trade stands to benefit consumers through increases in choice, quality and price.

Small and emerging economies outside the EU also hope for a ‘Brexit bonus’ should tariffs for their goods be dropped. Who stands to win and lose from a UK free to trade with the rest of the world?

Confirmed speakers on our Think Tent panel include:

  • Mark Littlewood, Director General of the IEA (Chair)

  • Steve Baker MP

  • Gerald Mason, Senior Vice President at Tate & Lyle Sugars

  • Liam Halligan, economist and journalist

  • Victoria Hewson, Senior Counsel of the IEA Trade Unit

Please note this event is held in the Secure Zone. A Conference pass is necessary to attend.
