Asia House Brexit Series: Sir Jonathan Faull KCMG

“Brexit negotiations will be the harsh reality of diplomacy. Nobody should be surprised unless they were a bit deluded”, said Sir Jonathan Faull, who until his retirement in January 2017 was the European Commission’s most senior British official. He adds: “There is a narrative that if the EU doesn’t give Britain absolutely everything it wants then it is a punishment. This is absolutely not the case”. He will join Asia House corporate members to discuss this position and give his views on the Brexit negotiations going forward.

Sir Jonathan Faull KCMG spent most of his early Commission career in the Directorate General of Competition. He was the Commission’s Spokesman and Director General of Press and Communication (1999-2003), Director General of Justice and Home Affairs (2003-2010), Director General of Internal Market and Services (2010-2015) and Director General of the Task Force on the British referendum on membership of the EU (2015-2016).

He was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in June 2017.
