    Cocktail Debate: the impact of Brexit on the transport sector

    22 November 2017 > 22 November 2017 Member's Salon, European Parliament, Brussels secretariat@debatingmobility.eu

    On 22 November 2017, the Forum for Mobility & Society will organise a cocktail debate discussing the impact of Brexit on the transport sector. The event, which will be hosted in the Members’ Salon of the European Parliament starting 18:30, will include a diverse panel of speakers to foster discussions on mobility, transport and logistical issues in light of the Brexit.

    Since the result of UK’s referendum on the membership of the European Union, social, political, legal and economic uncertainty has reached all policy sectors of the European Union. In the field of transport and mobility, a lot of uncertainty remains. To shed the light during these unsettling times, MEP Bernd Lange and the Forum for Mobility & Society are organising a high-level cocktail debate, which will be attended by key stakeholders and policy-makers.
