The Rt Hon Emily Thornberry MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Trade, led an Industry Forum discussion on ‘Opportunities and issues for post Brexit international trade’. In the context of health, climate, and economic emergencies, and the advent of a new US administration, the meeting, held under the Chatham House rule, focused on the complexity of international trade and the need for a joined up UK strategy that takes account of economic realities and political objectives. This requires policy-makers to approach issues with a systematic, problem-solving attitude in negotiations with businesses and trade partners. The meeting was sponsored by British Water and attended by an invited audience from business, overseas trade representatives, and academia. Other speakers included Lila Thompson, the CEO of British Water, Darren Budd, Commercial Director UK/Ireland BASF, and Anil Kakaria, Head of Sales & Operations EMEA, Moglix.
