“Brexit: What next?” – A round table discussion with Lord Mandelson and Ambassador Wittig

At the Reform Club lunch on March 25th 2019 Lord Mandelson and His Excellency the German Ambassador Dr Peter Wittig gave their views on the present state of the Brexit negotiations. The event was sponsored by the German British Forum and German British Chamber of Industry & Commerce. In the following discussion board members and guests from Industry, Financial Services, the Professions and the Press expressed their views and concerns vigorously. There was overall consent about the need for certainty and that whatever the outcome may eventually be that it was going to be an attempt of damage limitation rather than bringing about tangible benefits for the U.K. or the EU.
