OWIT INTERNATIONAL PRESENTS

"BREXIT: Status and Implications for UK Trade Partners"


In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. While the actual "exit" has yet to happen, the effects on the United Kingdom and its trading partners has already been seen. The impact on UK-EU Trade has already been very real and will be more important to understand if Brexit continues. This webinar will discuss this historic decision, what to expect next, and the legal and policy issues Brexit raises for the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the UK's non-European trading partners.
