Future of transatlantic trade up for discussion at BABC breakfast

Article Date: 25 August, 2017

The future of the transatlantic relationship and possible post-Brexit trade agreements will be up for discussion at a BABC Midlands breakfast in Nottingham on Friday 13 October.

The event will feature a presentation from MEP Emma McClarkin (pictured).

Emma is the European Conservatives and Reformists Coordinator on the International Trade Committee, which means she is the lead MEP in the group on trade matters.

This includes the EU-US trade deal (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) which is currently being negotiated, as well as the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) and legislation on conflict minerals.

Emma is at the forefront of opening up other trade deals or modernising some of those already in place, such as the trade pillar of the Global Agreement with Mexico.

Emma was appointed as a full member of the EP-US delegation in 2016 which is the European Parliament’s main forum for relations with the United States.

The speaker breakfast is a great opportunity to make new and generate business leads, share ideas and experiences and network in a relaxed environment without taking time out of your normal working hours.
