The Brussels office of McGuireWoods and the British Chamber
of Commerce in Belgium organised a
roundtable discussion at the offices of McGuireWoods on Brexit. A
André Sapir of Bruegel was followed by a discussion. The discussion covered
practical commercial issues arising out of Brexit, as well as the future
direction of the EU/UK talks and possible outcomes.
Bruegel is a major independent European think tank that specialises in
economics and policy research covering a range of hot topics worldwide. Mr Sapir
is co-author of the well-known paper “Europe
after Brexit: A proposal for a continental partnership”, published soon
after the UK referendum on Brexit in August 2016.
Companies attending included BASF, BMW, Danone, Deutsche Post DHL, ExxonMobil,
FTI Consulting, LVMH Publica, Monsanto, Renault Nissan, Royal Mail, Smiths Group
and UTC. Brussels partners Matthew Hall and Vassilis Akritidis attended on
behalf of McGuireWoods.
