You're listening to Live From Lord North Street, a podcast from the Institute of Economic Affairs.
Today we're joined by the Advisory Board of our International Trade and Competition Unit, made up of world-renowned experts in trade policy - including Sir Lockwood Smith, John Weekes and Alan Oxley, who join us today, along with ITCU's Director Shanker Singham.
Interviewed by the IEA's Madeline Grant, they give us a global view of Britain's place in the world - and their prognosis of how our negotiations have progressed so far.
They examine best practice in a range of different areas, including negotiating tactics, and discuss what an optimal free trade arrangement with the EU would look like. They also lay out some of the potential dangers and obstacles Britain may face in reaching this outcome.
Finally, they consider how an independent Britain could advance the cause of free trade on the world stage.
