The AERL is London’s primary network for diplomats responsible for economic, commercial and trade affairs. We organise around 10-12 exclusive presentations a year. These activities are run by a board of committed members. We place a strong emphasis on maintaining a balanced representation of geographical regions and gender on our board.
