The Legatum Institute is delighted to host the inaugural conference of its Special Trade Commission (STC), from Monday 6 February – Wednesday 8 February, in London.
The STC which is made up of 10 distinguished trade experts, who have, in total, over 200 years experience in trade negotiation, are travelling to London especially for this event from around the world. Their gathering couldn’t be more timely in the week that Parliament discusses the triggering of Article 50. They will begin to outline their vision for Britain’s exit from the European Union and the many trade negotiations that the UK will need to undertake. They’ll seek to re-focus the public discussion on Brexit towards a positive conversation about opportunities, rather than just the challenges, while presenting empirical evidence of the dangers of not following an expansive trade negotiating path.
The conference will include a public event, during which the Commissioners will share their expertise and recommendations for the UK’s exit strategy and the role of trade. Further information can be found here.

The Commission is chaired by Shanker Singham, Director of Economic Policy and Prosperity Studies at the Legatum Institute.
