8 events, 12 opportunities, 3 board members & 4 partnership announcements from UKABC – Aug 2017

Dear Readers,

We’re wishing a happy Independence Day to our Pakistani and Indian friends.

Every Independence Day we at UKABC reflect on what it means to be ‘independent’ and the journey a country and its people go on to reach this point. What makes a country progress or hinders its progress, whether a newly independent country or the oldest on earth, is based on the following:

1. Media
2. Judiciary
3. Investigating Agency
4. Bureaucracy
5. Economy

Keeping the above in mind, we’re pleased to announce that UK Asian Business Council will launch Asia and Africa Times in January 2018. It’s an uphill task that we feel is incredibly important in order to ensure there is a free and fair platform connecting all of the regions where our partner businesses and organisations reside.

If you would like to be involved in this exciting new, please get in touch [email protected]

UKABC Promotes Sponsorship Opportunities at Kampala 2017 – GREAT LAKES TRADE SUMMIT – 13-15 July 2017

UKABC Promotes Sponsorship Opportunities at Kampala 2017 – GREAT LAKES TRADE SUMMIT – 13-15 July 2017

At a time when globalisation is being contested
 by an organised anti-market movement, the Great Lakes Trade Summit will offer a platform for those dedicated to making a positive case for the alternative: a popular conservatism that works for the individual, not the corporates.

This conference is an initiative of the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformists in Europe (ACRE), who recognise that the European Union’s protectionist trade policies have often stunted the ability of third countries to add value. This needs to change. Following the Brexit vote, the time is ripe for reform, toward a Europe that advances global 
free trade with confidence.
