What are the prospects for UK-Asia trade? On November 16 the Asia Scotland Institute holds its first event at the University of Stirling.

Shanker Singham and Elizabeth Linder will discuss the options ahead for two-way trade with Britain – all the more relevant now in the post Brexit vote era.

And economist Gerard Lyons will now be speaking both in Edinburgh and Glasgow on November 29.

As former economic advisor to the Mayor of London and to the Board of Standard Chartered, Gerard Lyons is an expert on the world economy, global financial markets and on economic and regulatory policy. He will explore the recent multi-billion deal that Britain made with China, and the opportunities and threats of Chinese investment.

There is a small fee to attend these events – and a discount for students. For more details go to
