The LSE Economic Diplomacy Commission will hear evidence from a wide range of experts, policy-makers and leading business figures around the UK, including views of the general public to construct a report that will help shape Britain's foreign economic policies and position the country in the 21st century global economy.
Through extensive examination of the UK's economic diplomacy, the Commission will be in a position to formulate the principles that should underpin Britain's trade and investment policies as well as define the UK's role in the world. These policies will be analysed in tandem with foreign, environmental, security and other policies. The impact of such policies on the domestic economy and UK society will be considered throughout.
The report will provide concrete recommendations for the conduct of economic diplomacy for the UK, which might also be relevant to other countries. The Commission's evidence sessions will take place over the course of 2020. The report is expected to be completed in early 2021.
