Following on from our event before summer with David McAllister MEP, we are delighted to welcome Green MEP Anna Cavazzini to give her views on the UK-EU FTA negotiations and the prospects of a comprehensive future relationship. Anna is an active member of the European Parliament's committee on international trade (INTA), as well as a shadow rapporteur on the recommendations on the negotiations for a new partnership with the UK.
The discussion will centre on similar themes to our July webinar with Mr McAllister, but with the entirely different perspective of a Green MEP this is surely not one to miss!
