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.
