Message from the President, Sir Anand Satyanand

“Negotiating the Brexit plan and deal has been a major preoccupation for the UK over the last two years and it isn’t over yet. It has caused major political dislocation in the UK and divided the government, parliament, political parties and the public. Brexit is a major point of departure for the UK and will have implications for its place in the world and its diplomatic and trade partners. With the forthcoming talks by UK Brexit expert Professor Richard Whitman we hope to gain some understanding of what it means for the UK and for New Zealand. Our trading and political ties are significant and it will be important to unravel this complicated process and its effects both inside and outside of Britain.”
