Ambassadorial Briefing with Ambassador Joao Vale de Almeida
The Baltic American Chamber of Commerce (BACC) was delighted to be a part of the Ambassadorial Briefing with Ambassador Joao Vale de Almeida, a senior European Union diplomat who is currently serving as EU Ambassador to the United Nations, held on February 13, 2019 at the KPMG offices in Manhattan. The briefing was run by the British American Business. The attendees discussed how will businesses—and the rest of the world—prepare for the 2019 International year of transitions, as well the changing power dynamics within the multilateral sphere. 2019 may be a year of significant political upheaval for Europe. While Brexit is one of the more notable upcoming transitions, the region will also have a new European Parliament and European Commission, as well as face a change in leadership across the EU’s institutions. This, amidst global adjustment to an uncertain and evolving transatlantic relationship.
The briefing was sponsored by KPMG.
