    Asia House Brexit Series: UK Department for International Trade’s Mark Garnier

    The Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for International Trade (DIT) Mark Garnier MP will join Asia House corporate members for a private briefing on priorities for the new UK Department of International Trade (DIT), giving a particular emphasis on Asia.

    Mr Garnier will provide corporate members with further information on current and future plans for ministerial visits by his department to Asia and he will discuss UK-Asia trade priorities moving forward.

    In July, Mark visited Thailand and Myanmar on his first overseas visit as DIT Permanent Undersecretary where he launched the Thai-UK Business Leadership Council and he is scheduled to return to the region before the end of October.

    Mr Garnier was appointed as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for International Trade in July after Theresa May became prime minister and created the Department. He leads on high value export and investment campaigns in these sectors: financial services, advanced manufacturing and aerospace, automotive, bio-economy, consumer, creative and education. He will also be leading on work with the Export Control Organisation, the high volume export campaign, UK regional delivery and overseas partner delivery.

    Prior to this position, he was the Prime Minister’s trade envoy to Myanmar, Brunei and Thailand. He also served on the Treasury Select Committee (2010 – 2016) and the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards (2012 – 2014).

    This briefing is for Asia House corporate members only. To register, please contact Conor Paterson in the Business & Policy Team at conor.paterson@asiahouse.co.uk or call 0207 307 5439.
