Brexit Forum Event
The Brexit negotiations will reach their peak in 2018, as an eventual agreement on the future of UK international relations is decided. For this reason, it is important that the Chamber engages with all members dynamically to develop the argument for maritime advantages in the new UK-EU relationship. The Chamber is to host the next Brexit Forum event at the UK Chamber offices on the 28 March 2018. The event will trial a new tri-partite engagement format.
