Conference: What to do about Brexit – growing your business in times of global turbulence
The United Kingdom – Latvia Trade & Investment conference was hosted by law firm Ellex Klavins together with British Embassy Riga and the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.
There’s only one certainty in the modern world, and that is uncertainty. Is there a common recipe or are there guidelines to help us lead our business in such conditions? Are governments capable of creating an environment for prosperity and growth?
At the conference we asked real people from various industries within the economies of the United Kingdom and Latvia to understand how they actually do business today and how government institutions can help companies to increase exports and invest in further development.
The panel discussions of the event included:
• UK and Latvia business relations in light of Brexit
• Investments – Brexit inward and outward investment challenges and perspectives for Latvia.
• International Trade, challenges in the export and import operations in the present world.
Among the key participants were Sarah Cowley, British Ambassador to Latvia; Baiba Braže, Ambassador of Latvia to the United Kingdom; Raimonds Slaidins, Partner of Law firm Ellex Klavins and Anthony Parry, Senior Consultant at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
The conference took place on December 2, 2016; at Hotel Bergs. The event was well attended and received very much interest from the audience and the media.
