Upon the referendum voting in favor of leaving the European Union in June 2016, Prime Minister May triggered Article 50 of the Treaty on EU on March 29, 2017 – initially leaving a two-year time period to negotiate the arrangements for the exit of the United Kingdom. With several contract negotiations within the Parliament as well as between UK and EU, a number of changes of personnel in the Ministries, debates over ‘hard’ and ‘soft Brexit’, and a vote of no confidence, PM May is now re-submitting the Brexit deal to the Members of Parliament. Current states and negotiatons with EU paved the way for a postponement of Brexit, potentially until May 22 with the European Parlament elections just one day later.
Our speaker will shed light on the current developments of Brexit, its potential outcome and significance for the political landscape in Europe. How will Brexit further affect markets, financial institutions and trade in general?
