Le commerce international en eaux troubles

The future of international trade

The future of international trade

With protectionism and free trade clashing, only change is certain

Brexit

The only thing everyone agrees on about the changes affecting both Britain and the EU as a result of Brexit is that they will be huge. The clues are thin , frustration for business is high, and time is tight. Whether you’re interested in goods, people or services, you will be affected. What will happen when EU funding  is turned off in the UK? Where will Britain’s universities get their funding , and what of international research?

World Trade

Trade rules don’t just cover iPhones, cars and beef. They affect policy and regulation in telecoms, banking, foreign investment and intellectual property. With policy in the US looking to overturn 70 years of practice , the uncertain response of China, and a shifty and quixotic Russia, any surety in the future of international trade is scarce.   Objective and accurate analysis is vital for informed debate and policy-making.
