Asia Pacific Markets

TheCityUK works to influence policy to help drive greater trade and investment opportunities for UK-based financial and related professional services firms in the Asia Pacific region.

We strive to ensure our members and the wider UK-based financial and related professional services industry are seen as the partners of choice for companies from East, South and South East Asia and Australasia. We also work to maintain the UK’s position as the leading, international financial centre.

Priorities for our work in the Asia Pacific region

- Building network throughout the region for our members.
- Deepening policy dialogue and influence between the UK and Asia Pacific markets.

Our Asia Pacific work is closely aligned to our Liberalisation of Trade in Services (LOTIS) Committee. Through it we guide the industry’s objectives for trade and investment policy, including priorities for the UK’s bilateral trade and investment relationship with markets in the region, post Brexit.
