New Blog: The Future of the United Kingdom Investment Policy after Brexit
On 25 February 2020, BIICL convened an Investment Treaty Forum event to discuss the investment policy of the United Kingdom following its exit from the European Union.
The UK is getting ready to deliver on the ambitious promise to conclude new trade agreements with various countries around the world. Although the European Union rules did not prevent the United Kingdom from concluding its own international investment agreements consistent with EU law, the British government preferred to rely on Brussels to negotiate and conclude such agreements. The last bilateral investment treaty the United Kingdom concluded separately from the European Union was the 2010 Colombia-UK agreement.
