Global Britain in a Competitive Age

Global Britain in a Competitive Age

Tuesday, May 4 at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

Amidst the turmoil and uncertainty of the global pandemic, the United Kingdom departed the European Union on January 1 of this year (with a provisional cooperative agreement in place). As host of the next G-7 gathering in June and UN Climate Change Conference in November, opportunities abound for the UK to take on an even greater leadership role in crafting innovative and sustainable solutions to the most pressing challenges of our times, including climate change and health resilience.

The government has committed to achieving prosperity through free and fair trade; agreements have already been reached with over 60 non-EU nations, and negotiations continue to strengthen the US-UK Special Relationship through a new trade deal. Please join us for this inaugural session of the Milken Institute's Ambassador Speaker Series as we examine the opportunities in and priorities for a post-Brexit Global Britain with Dame Karen Pierce, the British Ambassador to the United States of America

Milken Institute Virtual Forums

In light of the global pandemic, the Milken Institute has expanded our convening ability to include a wide variety of virtual engagement opportunities. Our Virtual Forums gather our global community of thought leaders and issue-area experts to tackle a wide range of critical issues, many stemming from the impacts of COVID-19, such as vaccine development and distribution, loneliness and social isolation, remote learning, retirement security, and more. Each Virtual Forum is broadcast to a curated group of invited participants that are able to interact with the expert panel through moderated audience Q&A, while also being livestreamed to a global audience via the Milken Institute website and social media.
