Invitation: LCID at Conference / Labour Connected: What should a Labour vision for trade justice and private-sector international development look like?
We are pleased to invite you to another event, this time at Labour conference, or Labour Connected as it’s called this year. With Britain leaving the EU and DFID being taken over by the Foreign Office, this panel will explore what a fair and justice trade policy should look like for the UK, and how private-sector development can be done in a way that benefits those living in the worst poverty and help reduce inequality.
Speakers include, Shadow Minister of International Trade and LCID VP Gareth Thomas MP, Alice Lucas from the Fairtrade Foundation; and Ruth Bergan of the Trade Justice Movement, and will be chaired by LCID’s Chair Heather Staff. It will take place on Monday 21st September from 5-6pm, online. Link to follow, but in the meantime you can register for Labour Connected here.
