About this event

The British Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce are pleased to invite our members to an After-Work Event: "Brexit: Planes, drinking water, and Mars bars" with guest speakers including the British Ambassador, John Marshall.   This will take place on Thursday 07 November 2019 at 17:30 at Spuerkeess banking Centre "19 Liberté," 19 avenue de la Liberté, L-1160 Luxembourg.

Boris Johnson has reassured the British voters that even in the event of a no-deal Brexit, planes will be able to fly, drinking water will be available and there will be enough ingredients to make Mars bars.

(We won't mention the kippers.)

But seven days after the new Brexit deadline of 31 October, where will we really be?

Following an introduction by the British Ambassador, John Marshall,  experts in the relevant fields will present updates on topics such as the movement of people, VAT, transport, and other important issues affected by Brexit, followed by a Q&A session.

Our guest speakers are:

  • Martin Hollywood, Tax Partner, PwC Luxembourg
  • Claude Marx, Director General, CSSF
  • Marielle Stevenot, Employment Law Partner, PwC Legal Luxembourg

Douwe Miedema, Editor-in-Chief, Luxembourg Times, will moderate the discussion.
