After a period of uncertainty, CETA was finally signed on 30 October 2016 in Brussels. This ABC Meeting organsied in cooperation with the Industrie und Handelskammer für München und Oberbayern is therefore highly topical and will concentrate on the opportunities created by the Agreement and discuss the potential for translation into trade opportunities for the EU and the implications for the United Kingdom.
Given that some 55 International Free Trade and Economic Cooperation Agreements of the European Union have been signed or are under negotiation with no great public resistance, the controversy surrounding both this specific Agreement and TTIP has resulted in a political debate which is certainly not closed.
Join us for this topical follow up to the CETA signing and the opportunity for networking and discussion after the meeting at a drinks
reception at the invitation of ABC and IHK.
Please reply including the names of your guests and company or affiliation, preferably by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible but no later than Friday, 18 Nov. 2016. The „Diskussionsrunde“ will be in German but the informal discussion which we hope to provoke in English or German.
