To strengthen the debate on sustainable future relations between emerging Europe and the United Kingdom and connect businesses.
The United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union creates both challenges and opportunities for emerging Europe’s economies.
The UK is the region’s key economic partner. The UK’s share in Poland’s exports for example is second only to Germany, and in October the UK and Ukraine signed a historic post-Brexit free trade deal. We should also remember that millions of Eastern Europeans call the UK home.
The discussion will focus on three key areas of collaboration between the region and the United Kingdom: technology and entrepreneurship, health and life sciences, infrastructure and engineering.
