Brexit will remain a hot topic this year and the SCC will continue to keep you informed on the topic.

Join us for a Brexit Forum where we will discuss how the UK’s decision to leave the EU will affect businesses. The Forum will consist of two expert panel discussions and we will hear from both the Remain and Leave camps, as well as concluding remarks from the Swedish Ambassador.

The aim of the event is to explore the positive effects and opportunities that Brexit can present to businesses.

Among the confirmed speakers:

H.E. Torbjörn Sohlström, Swedish Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
