“Practical effects of Brexit” – a GBF discussion

German British Forum round table debate, Monday 25 June 2018 at The Reform Club with Lord Fox

The GBF board and guests from the media, politics and service sector met at the Reform Club on 25th June to debate alternative outcomes of the present Brexit negotiations as well as post Brexit Britain’s industrial strategy, corporate governance and skills issues. How would “no deal” a hard or soft Brexit affect manufacturing, the retail sector, financial services, law and logistics? It was an opportunity for senior German and British businesspeople to share their views with members of the press and politicians.

The aim was to provide a balanced view with negative, neutral and positive outcomes of Brexit. All participants expressed their appreciation of the event chaired by Lord Fox, Liberal Peer and spokesman for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
