Amsterdam, 23 March 2017
Recent geo-political changes create a lot of uncertainty. In order to provide some clarity as to what we can learn from it and how businesses can best adapt to it, the NBCC organised recently, together with partner organisation SANEC, a conference titled “Brexit, Trump and the Elections”.
The conference was held on 23 March 2017 and was kindly hosted by NBCC Premier Member Allen & Overy in Amsterdam. More than 70 members of NBCC and Sanec were in attendance.
The NBCC is grateful to Mr Alexander Rinnooy Kan for accepting the invitation to be the keynote speaker at the event. Mr Rinnooy Kan is a Professor in Economics and Business management at the University of Amsterdam, a Member of the Senate on behalf of Democrats 66 (D66), Former Chairman VNO (now VNO-NCW) and former President of the Dutch Social-Economic Council (SER). The title of his enlightening speech was "National and International lessons learnt on March 15".
The other speakers at the event were Marcel Baartman, Senior Economist at Clingendael whose presentation was titled: "The emerging new world order and its economic consequences", Mr Robert van der Jagt, Chairman of KPMG´s EU Tax Centre who addressed “Dealing with taxes in a changing world” and Mr Gerard Kastelein, Partner at Allen & Overy who delivered his presentation "Brexit from a legal perspective".
