Dear John,

Brexit was all about opportunities for Britain in world trade. 

We’re putting that promise to the test and getting into the detail. 

On Thursday 9th June at 10am, the UK Trade and Business Commission will be holding not one but two live panels back to back. The first will explore our post-Brexit economic agreement with Japan, and the second will delve into our possible trade deal with India.


Both panels will explore how this government’s post-Brexit trade deals are attempting to fix the holes in the UK’s trade now we’re not in the EU. 

The panel on India will also consider how Britain needs to understand what India wants from its trade with the UK in order to be an attractive trading partner. The panel on Japan will look at whether the deal the government signed is really having a positive impact on our economy - and whether trade with more distant partners can ever replace lost trade with our closest neighbours. 

In the first session, Commissioners will hear from
Dr Minako Morita-Jaeger, Senior research fellow in International Trade of University of Sussex Business School and a Policy Research Fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO), Pernille Rudlin, Managing Director, Rudlin Consulting Ltd., Lord Kim Darroch, Former British Ambassador to the US and Former National Security Advisor to the UK Prime Minister and Nick Von Westenholz, Director of Trade and Business Strategy at the National Farmers’ Union. 

In the second, a panel of
Pallavi Bhajaj, Trade and Digital Economy Expert, Sangeeta Khorana, International Trade Expert, Tony Matharu, Founder and Chairman of Integrity International Group and Lord Karan Bilimoria, Founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer, President of the Confederation of British Industry will give evidence on the future trading relationship between the UK and India. 

Watch both sessions from 10 am on Thursday 9th June by clicking on the button below:


The UK Trade & Business Commission is made up of business leaders from various business sectors and politicians from across the political spectrum. They take evidence from experts and make their findings public. 

The UK Government might want us all to just accept that their trade deals are great, but we want to know what it all actually means. I hope you do too. 

Best wishes,

Cary Mitchell

Director of Operations, Best for Britain
