It is also a unique opportunity for participating barristers to meet local lawyers, network, promote themselves and their chambers, and increase their understanding of the local legal markets. The visits are timely, with both countries having recently signed free trade agreements with the EU.

The visit is supported by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), the Government department that helps UK-based companies succeed in the global economy and assists overseas companies in bringing their highquality investment to the UK. UKTI is also offering eligible chambers financial support through market visit grants.
