In light of these turbulent times The Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and SYITC are very proud to announce a rare visit from the World Trade Organisation, Trade Policy Group Assistant Director Tom Goodwin up North to Sheffield.

In 2013 he returned to London and he is currently based in the Department for International Trade where he is responsible for relations with the WTO. In particular, he is working on the WTO schedules of commitments that will be necessary as the UK leaves the European.
