Brexit, a Commonwealth opportunity?

In the light of Brexit, the United Kingdom is seeking to strengthen its ties with the 52 nations of the Commonwealth, bound together by shared traditions and a common language. Can the UK succeed in diversifying its trade with this powerful global network of 2.5 billion people? What are the main issues and how can the pitfalls be avoided? Could China open a dialogue with the Commonwealth? 

An audience poll will be taken at the start and finish of the event on the proposition: 'Will Brexit offer new opportunities for business, trade and cultural exchange between the UK, the Commonwealth and China?'
