A clear majority of members of the British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium believe the UK should remain in the EU. UK membership of the EU is vital both for the UK and the future of the EU and the UK Referendum is an opportunity to give momentum to reform. As a key member of COBCOE, we are working together to give businesses a voice through this initiative.
We are collaborating with COBCOE - the Council of British Chambers of Commerce, who will reveal results of their research with businesses throughout the region on what businesses need to help build a competitive Europe.
The Evolving Europe project, with debates in London and Brussels, will provide a voice for business in identifying how Europe needs to change to improve growth, competitiveness and the ease of doing business. These debates will feed into a White Paper to be launched at the end of the year.
The debate will be driven by and based on the following questions:
- What needs to reform and why?
- Why is the EU necessary for UK success in the global economy?
- How, from a business view, could the EU work better?
- How will Europe compete in the future?
Our confirmed Panelists include:
Philippe de Backer MEP
David Thomas MBE - Executive Chairman of Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe
Tom Parker - British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium
