Trade Negotiations – A behind the scenes look at how it really works

Business and governments around the world are talking about negotiating new trade deals. The world seems full of experts but there are very few who have recent experience in leading these negotiations – and are free to talk about it!

How do governments talk to their consistencies?

How can you achieve a balanced outcome?

Join us for a unique, behind the scenes look at how it really works with former Mexican lead trade negotiator, Cesar Guerra, Partner, Director of Trade Policy in Euraffex, and Daniel Dalton, former Member of the European Parliament and now Britcham EU chief executive.

Cesar has more than 25 years of experience in trade negotiations and was Mexico’s former chief negotiator with the European Union. He successfully worked on the modernization of their mutual Free Trade Agreement. His experience additionally includes heavy involvement in negotiations with the United States, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and in the World Trade Organization. He is an expert on tariffs, rules of origins and regulatory issues in the scope of international trade and offers regular consultancy to public and private stakeholders.  

In partnership with British Chambers of Commerce, Global Trade Month and Britcham EU

We look forward to welcoming companies from the Global Business Network of British Chambers of Commerce
