Services and Brexit

Thursday 2 May 2019, 08:30 - 09:45

Services make up the majority of the UK economy. But the Brexit debate has focused much more on how to ensure continuity of frictionless trade in goods, and far less on the needs of the very diverse and fragmented services sector.

At this event, our panel discussed how the Government has taken account of the interests of the services sector in Brexit. They will also consider how to ensure the UK services sector is best placed to benefit from both the UK’s future relationship with the EU and the opportunities that Brexit offers.

Panellists included:

  • Adam Minns, Executive Director, Commercial Broadcasters Association
  • Giles Derrington, Associate Director of Policy, techUK
  • Emma Dowden, COO, Burges Salmon LLP
  • Elisa Kerr, Managing Director, State Street.

The discussion was chaired by Joe Owen, Programme Director at the Institute for Government. There was an opportunity for audience questions.
