Chairman's New Year Reception 2019

In 2019 a new European Parliament will be elected, and for 25 years the European Single Market has enabled free movement for people and goods between its member states. Faced with international trade conflicts, gloom about economic prospects and uncertain markets, Europe remains a safe haven for export success for German and Swedish companies. Our guest speaker Holger Bingmann will share his point of view on how Europe secures our welfare, and what opportunities the European markets offer in 2019.

The speech will be followed by a discussion with amongst others Harald Pflanzl, SVP and Head of Central Europe BASF, about the future of EU and how to unify the EU members in order to create further growth and competitiveness. It will be held in English and be moderated by economic journalist Ulf Wickbom.

For whom: We welcome medium- and large-sized German and Swedish export companies within our network.
