The discussion at this event focused on the strategic choices facing corporate decision-makers as they prepare for Brexit and other shifts in the geopolitical landscape. How are American and other multi-national businesses planning for harder borders between the UK and EU? What should be the main objectives of a new UK-US trade deal? What is expected on tax reform in different regions?
