Event description

Description

Join our breakfast meeting to discuss post Brexit services trade.

The UK faces a complex re-design of trading arrangements after BREXIT. There has been much discussion but most has focussed on trade in goods, whereas the UK is primarily a service economy and services are critical to almost all economic activity. The panel of experts from the UK Trade Policy Observatory will lead a discussion of aspects of services trade after Brexit, including:

  • How the UK and EU might achieve deep integration in services after Brexit while respecting WTO rules.

  • Can there be progress in goods trade without progress in services? Lessons from the EU single market for services?

  • Shallow vs deep integration - why shallow is deeper than is often supposed and how to manage the complementary policy areas in deep integration.

  • Data on services: what do we know about services and what would we need to know for making progress?

Speakers:

  • Richard BALDWIN, Professor International Economics, The Graduate Institute, Geneva; President of CEPR; Associate Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory

  • Ingo BORCHERT, Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Sussex; Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory

  • Bernard HOEKMAN, Professor and Director, Global Economics at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University; Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory

  • L Alan WINTERS, Professor of Economics at the University of Sussex and Director of the UK Trade Policy Observatory

Introduced and moderated by Theresa CARPENTER , Executive Director of the Graduate Institute's Centre for Trade and Economic Integration; Associate Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory


This event is part of the CTEI's 'at and around the WTO Public Forum' programme.
