8:30 am - 1:30 pm

The Canning Conference 2017 is taking place on the morning of 28th September.

Following the UK’s decision to vote ‘Brexit’ and signal its intention to leave the European Union, this conference will look at any changing dynamic this might result in with its relationship with Latin America. Taking into consideration the UK government’s ‘Canning Agenda’ and any possible necessity to ramp up its engagement with regions such as Latin America following the ‘Brexit’ vote, this year’s conference will also look to other countries around the world, such as China, India and Germany, to see what we can learn from their success in trading and investing in Latin America.

As well as keynote speakers, the panels will discuss the following: ‘The Global View – Trading & Investing Successfully in Latin America’ and the ‘UK Outlook – How are British companies adapting to match the success of other regions?’

The final programme is available here, which includes the following speakers:

HE Julián Ventura, Ambassador of Mexico to the UK

Kara Owen, Director, Americas at the Foreign Office
