Pivot: the UK’s new Indo-Pacific trade focus (Resolution Foundation)

26 January 2022, 9:30 am - 10:45 am

The UK’s exit from the EU has given it the freedom to pursue an independent trade strategy for the first time in four decades. To date, post-Brexit trade debate has focused on lost access to EU markets, roll-over deals preserving the status quo, and a lack of progress with the US. But the start of trade negotiations with India last week marks an attempt to start a fresh chapter in the UK’s trade strategy – a pivot towards distant but fast growing markets of the Indo-Pacific region.

Webinar hosted by the Resolution Foundation about the opportunities and challenges from this new strategy.


  • John Alty,  Permanent Secretary of the Department for International Trade
  • Anna Isaac, Economics Editor at The Independent
  • Sally Jones, UK Trade Strategy and Brexit leader at Ernest and Young
  • Sophie Hale, Principal Economist at the Resolution Foundation
Chair: Torsten Bell, Chief Executive of the Resolution Foundation
