With ambitious deals such as the UK-Australia Free Trade Agreement, UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, the recent agreement in principle for a trade deal with New Zealand, the Digital Economy Agreement with Singapore, and CPTPP access negotiations, the UK is forging strong digital trade links in the Asia Pacific and taking substantive steps in pursing the “tilt” towards Indo-Pacific strategy. In this session, we will explore what commercial opportunities the UK’s new FTA wins bring to tech businesses and how to maximise their benefits for digital tech scaleups.
