Conference pt. 3 "Trading Places - The UK's future of Trade with the GCC and MENA"

It is the UK's 7th largest export market, worth more than £60 Billion. But can a trade deal between the UK and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) really happen?

The UK government estimates that a UK-GCC Free Trade Agreement, FTA, could increase trade by 16%. But FTAs do not come easy. The EU has been negotiating with the GCC since 1990. Can Britain seal a deal that works at all levels? We talk to those at the frontline of navigating the challenges.
