Ever since 23 June 2016, when it became clear that the ‘Leave’ campaign had won the Brexit referendum, the UK entered into talks with Brussels over an agreement on how the island would separate politically from the continent. Whilst these negotiations are still ongoing, the international community has not sat by idly waiting for an outcome. Rather, they have been actively seeking to develop a strategy vis-à-vis the EU and the UK, with Asian countries in particular striving to understand and adapt to the likely implications of Brexit. Whilst negotiations are understandably preoccupying both the EU and the UK, developing a strategy to position themselves within a world in which Asian countries play an increasingly significant role is of clear importance for either party. As the Brexit process progresses, how will these strategies develop? And what are they likely to look like?

This conference gathers a panel of academics, politicians and experts in the field of Euro-Asian relations to discuss this much debated subject. Throughout this event, light will be shed on the what is being done to ensure the strength of EU-Asia relations post-Brexit, and how this relationship is likely to look once the UK leaves the European Union.
