Strong UK-China trade relations after Britain leaves the European Union are seen by many as a win-win.  As the UK forges a new role for itself in the world, the British Government is keen to signal its ambition; but it is still unclear what the UK-EU and EU-China implications might mean for a bilateral deal.  This exciting panel event will see experts from the UK Trade Policy Observatory at the University of Sussex discussing UK-Chinese trade relations against the backdrop of Brexit and the role of the World Trade Organisation.
