Department of International Trade Online Roundtable

Wednesday 12 January | 1300 - 1400

The UK and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have agreed to work towards a new Free Trade Agreement in 2022.

SCDI and the Department for International Trade (DIT) would like to invite you to discuss the opportunities. Joining the online event will be Vanessa Stuart-Graham, Deputy Chief Negotiator for the deal.

The GCC is a customs bloc of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Trade in goods between Scotland and the GCC is already £1.555bn per annum, 7.1% of the UK total.

Significant opportunities to increase trade include food, financial and professional services, clean energy, education, digital, travel and consumer goods.

The DIT has launched a public consultation on priorities for a FTA. The event will provide an outline of the process and opportunities, and allow participants to discuss their opportunities and priorities.
