In March 2021, the British government published a report titled 'Global Britain in a Competitive Age: the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy'. The report articulates the UK's strategy for national security and foreign policy going forward. It outlines the UK's fundamental national interests and core values, and indicates how these would apply to the most difficult questions the UK faces in today's international landscape.
The Review characterised China as a 'systemic challenge', a designation that could shape the UK's role in global politics for the foreseeable future. However, while the report raises potential concerns on the security front, it also pledges to maintain a constructive commercial relationship with China. What would this relationship look like, and what does this mean for British businesses in China?
Join the British Chamber and CBI for our latest UK- China dialogue, in which we are once again delighted to be joined by Kerry Brown, Professor of Chinese Studies and Director of the Lau China Institute at King's College London, to discuss the current state of the bilateral relationship, what implications the Integrated Review has for future cooperation and what Global Britain's new strategy means for Global China.
This webinar take place on Tuesday 13 April at 5pm-6pm China Time/ 10am-11am UK Time.
You will receive a zoom join link at least 24 hours prior to the start of the webinar.
