What Does Brexit Mean for the UK and EU relations with China? The new British government has been clear and firm about Brexit meaning Brexit, but what does this mean for relations with China – both for the United Kingdom and China? In order to try to pry into some of the many difficult questions around this topic, Young China Watchers London is delighted to host Duncan Innes-Kerr, Asia Regional Director of the Economist Intelligence Unit, and Agatha Kratz, Associate policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations, in a town hall session moderated by Raffaello Pantucci, YCW Co-Founder. The event will aim to be a town hall discussion, offering participants an opportunity to hear some preliminary thoughts on the possible implications for the UK, EU, and their respective relations with China, as well as put their own thoughts and questions for discussion
