    18th November: Manufacturing and a Global Britain

    As the UK finally fully leaves the EU at the end of the transition period this session will focus on recasting trade relationships in a post-Brexit world, the role of trade as a vital part of the economic recovery, and the importance of international cooperation in driving global trade.

    By joining this webinar, attendees can understand the emerging opportunities, and how Government policy will evolve to boost exports as part of the ‘Global Britain’ initiative, especially for SMEs. Additionally, companies can learn what they should be doing to take advantage of new markets and what support is available.
