During this Brexit briefing, Dr Adam Marshall will discuss what matters most to British business and what can Britain and Europe achieve in the future.
The UK business community “wants a transition agreed in principle and trade talks under way by the end of 2017. If there is not that clarity, we will start to see the activation of contingency plans and likely significant impact on business investment”, says Dr Marshall.
As a leading voice for business in the UK, the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is at the centre of the current debate over the shape Brexit will take and how Britain can work with its partners in the future.
This briefing will provide the opportunity for members to engage directly with a key player in the Brexit debate.
British Ambassador to Belgium, Alison Rose will follow Dr Marshall's presentation and will highlight the priorities of the UK Government.
