Doing Business in the EU after Brexit


Program Overview

The United States and the European Union (EU), with its 28 member states, enjoy a mature economic relationship that is characterized by nearly $4 trillion in two-way investment.  U.S. exports of goods and services to the EU-28 in 2015 exceeded   $500 billion and imports from the EU, $604 billion.  It is estimated that transatlantic commerce generates more than 15 million jobs. U.S. and foreign affiliates of both parties employed a total of 8.3 million workers in 2014 which is a 4 percent increase over 2013.


This seminar will review the impact that the surprising decision to leave the EU by England will have on business opportunities.
