GMCC is holding a presentation and networking event to introduce you to the topic of Rules of Origin and get a better understanding of the Free Trade Agreements between the UK and other countries. You will have the chance to meet experts from various industries and clarify all your doubts on the topic.

As explained by WTO, Rules of origin are the criteria needed to determine the national source of a product. A better understanding of Rules of Origin and Free Trade Agreement allows importers and exporters to reduce their import duties.
