Impact on UK-Americas Relations

The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union presents many potential opportunities and challenges for British relations with the Americas. Conditions for future relationships or agreements will inevitably vary from the UK, United States and Latin American points of view, and across governmental and corporate perspectives.

On 16 November, Canning House and the Americas Society / Council of the Americas presented a high-level discussion on Brexit and its impact on UK-Americas relations. Senior government officials, corporate figures and thought leaders delivered strategic insights on matters from trade, finance and investment to security, development and social issues, and on how all parties can take advantage of this evolving world order.
