Much discussion of Brexit has focused on increased friction for physical goods. The UK, however, does much, profitable services trade with the EU, underpinned by data flows. This is particularly significant for the UK financial services and technology sectors. While the UK was a member of the EU, EU-UK data flows were uninhibited, and the now invalidated Privacy Shield delivered unrestricted UK-US data flows. The post-Brexit threats to EU-UK data flows are set out in a UCL report. At this virtual roundtable, Oliver Patel, one of the report authors will lead a discussion of the business implications of this change with other leading experts. This will be followed by a Q&A.
