BREXIT: A Month of Negotiation, How Far Have We Come? – 27 April 2017



Join the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce at the Ministry of Economic and Financial Affairs for a round table discussion, a month after the triggering of Article 50.

27th April 2017
from 12:30 to 13:45

29th March 2017 will no doubt be a date for the history books in years to come. Following the triggering of Article 50, one thing has been decided: the UK will leave the European Union.

Although “Hard Brexit” may have finally been initiated, the fate of the UK and its relationship with the other member countries is still very much undecided. Two years’ worth of negotiations are yet to take place, and for those with interests both sides of the Channel, this period of uncertainty raises many questions.

At the Ministry of Finance, 27th April, a month on from the big day, we will be joined by high-profile speakers, who will share their expertise and insights of what is to come over the next couple of years over a round table discussion. We hope you can attend for what will surely be an informative, interesting and highly topical discussion.
