The Future of Trade and Export Forum

Linklaters is proud to sponsor the Telegraph’s Future of Trade and Export Forum at The Jumeirah Carlton Town, London on 26th June 2019.

The Forum will bring together over 250 decision makers to facilitate dialogue on the future of international trade & export for medium-large enterprises, focusing the debate around three core pillars of:

  • Trade policy – how the import export strategy of corporates is being impacted by government policy
  • Technology – how new technology will create efficiencies and better facilitate trade
  • Finance – how innovations in the financial sector, through startup disruptors and new tech such as blockchain, will impact trade

International trade is a complex, political and rapidly changing environment and our leading trade lawyers are excited to be a part of such an important conversation about its future.  

What we’ll be doing at The Future of Trade and Export Forum

We'll be chairing a panel – New Horizons: Where to trade and what you need

Charlotte Morgan, Linklaters Co-Head of Trade, will be chairing the New Horizons panel and welcoming David Henig, Director of UK Trade Policy Project at ECIPE, Matt Houlihan, Director, Government and Corporate Affairs at Cisco an Aaron Rosland, Senior Economic Office at the Canadian High Commission to discuss:

  • Seizing opportunities and overcoming impediments to trade in new destinations
  • Implementing and accessing infrastructure to trade globally
  • Considering challenges for the services sector 
  • Getting it right: What is needed to export successfully?

Join us for the last panel of the day at 16.00.

We will be running a breakout session on The New Customs Regimes: What do they mean for you?

Senior Trade Counsel Lorand Bartels alongside Terry Sculoer, Chairman of the Institute of Export & International Trade, will be discussing the new customs regimes, what it means for those trading outside of Europe and examining implementation timescales and how technology can simplify the process.

This session is part of the Trade Policy program and it starts at 13.55.
