Trade & Investment

We engage with policymakers and stakeholders in the world of trade & investment, creating a constructive dialogue on key issues facing the EU & the UK

what we do

The European Union’s trade agenda for the coming five years will have to cope with a wide range of important topics, including:

a) How to safeguard the multilateral rules-based trading system and navigating geo-strategically between conflicts with the United States and with the new competing trading powerhouse of China

b) How to work with like-minded countries moving forward new plurilateral WTO deals and WTO reform as well as settling pending and new bilateral negotiations, including a “21st century” trade agenda promoting services and digital trade

c) How to address best the many “non-trade issues” which are of increasing public concern: human rights, modern slavery, environmental protection and climate change as well as creating awareness about benefits of trade agreements and ensuring their proper implementation and enforcement.

Regular events: 

  • Tackling international issues that are of importance to our community such as briefings on Global Trade and the effect on SMEs in a global market.
  • Discussing with key policymakers both the European Union and the United Kingdom’s agenda of trade negotiations.

This Committee is open to Full and Patron members. Contact bernada.cunj@britcham.eu to get involved.
