Workshop on the ‘Impact of Brexit on the Economies of the OIC Member States’
Date : 18-19 April 2017 Venue : Dubai United Arab Emirates

SESRIC, in collaboration with ICDT and IDB, will be organizing a workshop looking at the potential impacts Brexit will have on the economies of OIC Member Countries. The people of the United Kingdom on 23rd June 2016 voted narrowly to leave the European Union (EU). The decision which is now dubbed Brexit is seen as one of the biggest political seismic swift in recent times. Since its founding after the Second World War, no member country has quit the EU which is the largest single market in the world. And as the second largest economy in Europe, The UK is one of the most important members of the EU. The British Prime Minister, Therese May, has recently triggered Article 50 of the EU Treaty, beginning a two year divorce process. Although it is unclear what sort of a deal the UK will get from the EU after it leaves the grouping, the implications of this political move will no doubt be felt around the globe including in the OIC member Countries.
