Former UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will join Asia House corporate members for a private briefing to give his insights on the UK’s Brexit negotiations and the current domestic political climate.
Clegg was one of the most prominent pro-European voices ahead of the 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union (EU), and has since continued to be a regular commentator on the Brexit process. He has called for greater clarity on what Britain seeks to achieve from the exit negotiations, and ultimately on its role outside the EU, which he argues is vital prior to any discussion of a transition phase.
Nick Clegg served as Deputy Prime Minister in Britain’s first postwar coalition government from 2010 to 2015 and as Leader of the Liberal Democrats from 2007 to 2015. He was the Member of Parliament for Sheffield Hallam from 2005 – 2017, and served as a Member of the European Parliament for five years prior.
This event is taking place as part of the Asia House Brexit Series, which encompasses a number of seminars and private briefings examining the implications of Brexit.
This briefing is for Asia House corporate members only. To register, please contact Melanie Ullrich in the Business & Policy Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 307 54629.
