Between the Covid-19 pandemic, ever-increasing damaging effects of climate change, and shifting pattens on the market, global trade has been going through a period of profound change. As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, the need to review trade policy models and learn from emerging powers like Singapore, is bigger than ever – especially if it can help the country renew economic democracy and ensure future prosperity. A recent report published by GENN, ‘The Extraordinary Rise of Singapore’, helps identify some of the key transformative processes and features that have elevated Singapore to a premier league of global cities alongside Hong Kong, New York, Dubai and London.
To discuss the future of UK trade policy and the country’s ambitions as a leader in free and fair trade, we will be joined by:
- Shanker Singham, Chairman of the Global Economic Neural Network
- Martin Bell, Deputy Director – Trade, The Scotch Whisky Association
- Frank Dunsmuir, Industry Lead Customs & International Trade, Fujitsu
- Robert Colvile, Director, Centre for Policy Studies
- Alys Denby, Deputy Editor, CapX (Chair)
This virtual event took place on Wednesday 25th November at 17.00 – 18.00.
