Following instability in 10 Downing Street and months of dispute, the UK and European Union issued a joint statement announcing an agreement to provide the EU with access to British real-time information on trade across the Irish Sea.
As the 25th anniversary of the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement approaches, is this a sign of a broader reconciliation between the UK and EU? Is a solution to the question of the Northern Ireland protocol looming? Which obstacles remain?
John Orchard, chief executive officer, OMFIF, is joined by an expert panel to discuss the state of play in negotiations between the UK and EU and their policy implications. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the discussion.
04:30-05:30 (New York)
