December plenary on customs and supply chains after Brexit

17 Dec 2018

We are at a critical moment in defining Europe’s future relationship with the UK. With the UK due to exit the European Union in three and half months, AmCham EU hosted a timely panel discussion on ‘Brexit: what does it mean for customs and supply chains?’, led by the Customs and Trade Facilitation Committee.

The panelists included: Isolde Murphy, First Secretary, Customs, Excise & Energy Taxation, United Kingdom Representation to the EU (UKRep), Werner Rens, Advisor-General, Head of Department, Marketing FPS Finance (Belgian Customs and Excise), Ingrid Persson, Director International Trade & Customs EMEA, Nike and Vincent De Saedeleer, Vice-President, Port of Zeebrugge. Moderated by Walter van der Meiren, Director, Customs Compliance, Regulatory, Training, UPS Europe, the debate focused on the impact of a potential “hard” Brexit for each organisation represented. 

Émer Deane, Director, Brexit Unit, Permanent Representation of Ireland to the EU, delivered the keynote remarks during the seated lunch.
