About

With the European Parliament’s recent vote ratifying the Trade and Co-operation Agreement between the EU and the UK, the focus now shifts to its implementation and at how co-operation can be built upon and extended in the coming years.

While the United Kingdom faces a unique opportunity afforded to very few advanced economies – to review its laws from first principles – it remains unlikely that it will radically diverge from the EU in most areas, not least because the UK helped to shape EU law. The TCA also limits the possibilities for divergence, while the so-called “Brussels effect” will remain in areas such as data and emissions for the foreseeable future, demanding close EU-UK alignment.

This inaugural EU-UK Forum annual conference will assess, amongst other things, perhaps the biggest challenge of all: re-building trust and realigning the relationship. It will convene political commentators and experts, policymakers, businesses, and civil society to discuss the nature of the relationship as it stands today and on the key areas for continued and future co-operation.

EU-UK: Evolving Trade Policies and Opportunities for Cooperation

Despite the departure of the UK from the European Union, the EU and the UK continue to share essential underlying values. This roundtable session will explore more specifically the evolution of trade policy on both sides of The Channel, and how the EU and the UK may influence each other as these policies are developed in the years to come.
