Summer programme – Doing Business in Europe

Presentation

Next programme: June 29th –July 9th, 2021

The purpose of this programme is to provide practical ideas about doing business in Europe especially in the context of Brexit and the reshaping of commercial relationships between European Union (EU) countries and the United Kingdom. Inside the EU, these relationships are also modified indirectly after Brexit since the EU is faced with the loss of a major international power and second largest contributor to the EU budget leading to a reassessment of themselves their roles and functions. Another issue concerns the division between EU members about whether the EU purpose should now be to create a major free trade zone or to move to political integration. This issue that has never been settled and comes into sharp focus with the departure of the United Kingdom.
