ICC Annual General Meeting - London, 20 June, 2019

An effective understanding of the world trading system and World Trade Organisation (WTO) is a critical skill for decision makers involved in trade. 

This event will be a practical, interactive 101 session with international business leaders and experts about the global trading system, WTO, trade agreements and the future of the UK in the WTO. 

It is an excellent opportunity to improve knowledge and awareness about the critical trade issues facing UK companies post Brexit.
