SBJBC member DLA Piper hosted Secretary of State for International Trade Dr Liam Fox MP for a Spectator debate on “Trade and Business in a post-Brexit World” on 29 September, moderated by broadcaster and publisher Andrew Neil.

Discussion focused on the potential for negotiation of new trade agreements including with the EU, and the opportunities for UK exporters of goods and services.  In reply to questions Dr Fox confirmed that UK trade and investment development with the Gulf and Saudi Arabia remained a high priority, particularly in the context of Saudi Vision 2030 where UK expertise could assist with implementation.
