The government has recently opened the bidding process for at least 10 sites for new freeports. UK seaports, airports and rail hubs are to apply for freeport status and they are seen as a means of boosting the country's economic growth post-Brexit. The freeports plan is seen as a contentious issue affecting competitive dynamics between the UK and the EU at the end of the Brexit transition.
Bernardine Adkins and Jonathan Brufal will look at the legal issues affecting the development and operation of these freeports.
During the session the speakers will answer as many questions as possible in the time available.
