As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, our European counterparts prepare for the new relationship ahead. We are inviting permanent representatives from various EU member states to give briefings on their views and position on Brexit. 

The fifth briefing of this series will be given by Dr Stephan Raes Head of Economic Department from the Netherlands Permanent Representation to the EU.

This event will begin with a briefing over breakfast, followed by a question and answer session and end with a networking session. 

This event is open to full members and patron members only and spaces are limited. Only one representative per company permitted due to limited space.
