How realistic is it for the U.K. to join EFTA the “most obvious off-the-shelf trade arrangement”? What would the EFTA members (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) and the U.K. gain from the U.K. entering the partnership? What are the obstacles, pros and cons and is there political support for the union among the EFTA members and in the U.K.?

Join us at this high-level panel discussion on Brexit and EFTA and hear what key players such as Gudlaugur Thor Thordarsson, the Icelandic Minister for Foreign Affairs and Richard Turner, HM Consul & Regional Director, East USA, Department of International Trade and others have to say about this important and timely subject.
