With Brexit now proceeding, the focus of attention is shifting to issues related to the future relationship between the UK and the EU. In this EU Chat, we will talk about the issues that are most critical to the future growth of the UK economy: foreign trade in services (particularly in financial and insurance services), foreign direct investment, research, higher education, and attraction of talent (economic migration). These are the cutting edges of the UK but in all these areas, issues are complex and not only vis-à-vis the EU, but also vis-à-vis the US which is the major competitor of the UK in all these areas. For each issue, we will discuss the relevant characteristics of the UK and the main developments in the past decades.
Interested in hearing the EU’s perspective and discussing these issues over pizza and drinks? Dr. István P Székely is the EU fellow at CEUCE for 2019-2020 and a principal advisor of the European Commission (DG ECFIN) in Brussels. Space is limited so please register here.
