Plan A+: Debate and discussion

Share This Content
The IEA was delighted to host a panel discussion on ‘Plan A+: Creating a prosperous post-Brexit UK’.

The opportunity before the UK as a result of Brexit is a great one: but if the UK squanders it, what has been described as the ‘new normal’ of limited economic growth could prevail, with an EU system that does not appear to be responding on a competitive level to the challenges of the modern economy.

‘Plan A+’ proposes the adoption of a four-pillared trade policy strategy, taking unilateral, bilateral, plurilateral and multilateral action to deliver a more competitive and thriving UK economy.

Panellists:

Andy Mayer: Chief Operations Officer, IEA (Chair)

Shanker Singham: Director of the International Trade and Competition Unit (IEA) and co-author of ‘Plan A+’

Steve Baker MP: Chairman of the European Research Group

Professor Jeremy Clegg: Professor of European Integration and International Business Management at Leeds University Business School

Dr Holger P. Hestermeyer: Shell Reader in International Dispute Resolution at King’s College London and author of ‘How Brexit will Happen’
