October 16, 2019

ICC invites business leaders and government officials to join the discussion around the future of UK international engagement and the role of the private sector in shaping the global trading environment, in particular with the emerging markets, at its upcoming event – Going Global – which will take place at the Guildhall on 21st October 2019.

The half-day event – organised in collaboration with City of London and the Department for International Trade – will address the policy challenges facing UK businesses, and ways in which these can be overcome by improving global collaboration and ramping up engagement with the international organisations such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the United Nations (UN).  

The event boasts an array of expert speakers, including officials from the UK government, the UN and the WTO, as well as senior spokespeople from multinational corporations, including Diageo and Huawei. With UK business leaders, politicians and the Lord Mayor of the City of London being just some of those attending the event, Going Global will provide vital insights to help businesses navigate the myriad geopolitical challenges currently facing the business sector.

Going Global will take place between 8:15am and 12pm, on Monday 21st October at the Guildhall, Gresham St, London, EC2V 7HH. If you would like to attend the event, please contact Natalie Milsom at nmilsom@iccwbo.uk. For any press enquiries, please contact press@iccwbo.uk.
