Breakfast Briefing on International Policy and Business

Professor Peter Buckley OBE will present on his research and work with the United Nations Conference on Trade & Development (UNCTAD) on the World Investment Report. The report is the ‘bible’ on international investment for policymakers worldwide. Peter’s work connections in this international policy arena have led to him working in the Palais de Nations in Geneva and attending meetings with Presidents and Ministers. He has advised businesses on the implications of trade flows and contributed to policy discussions at the G20 Business Summit. Peter will talk about his work in this international policy arena and what it means for policymakers in the UK and elsewhere. 

Peter is a Professor of International Business and Founder Director of the Centre for International Business at University of Leeds (CIBUL). He is also the Founder Director of the Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds.
