Brexit Exchange is a European Business Forum of high-level exchange of views between European business leaders and politicians. This forum allows companies and their representatives to be consulted and be part of the negotiation process, discussing with the politicians in charge of negotiation the most important aspects of each business sector.
ICP Consulting, as a consultant responsible for promoting the initiative in Spain, understands that in this period of negotiation, the opinions of entrepreneurs are crucial. We understand that their concerns and the solutions they can provide should be consulted and taken into account in the process of negotiation. For this purpose, ICP will identify the main Spanish economic sectors affected by the Brexit and will invite its representatives and companies to participate in this initiative, and be part of the dialogue with European politicians.
The initiative is led by:
Jonathan Powell, former Chief of Staff of British Prime Minister Tony Blair and British chief negotiator for the Northern Ireland Peace Process.
Steffen Kampeter, Managing Director of the German Confederation of Employers’ Associations (BDA) and former German Deputy Minister of Finance.
In addition to a network of European advocates and organizations that includes the founding companies: Sans Frontières Associates, Crossing Borders Ltd and Dods Group.
Through the organization of Brexit Exchange Summits, the communiqués will be issued later as an advisory note to negotiators and will be distributed directly and through our Dods media partners to UK and EU ministers, officials and diplomats, as well as to the UK and European media.
The communiqué will form the basis of a promotional strategy to inform European negotiators and governments of the issues raised in the Brexit Exchange. Its objectives will be:
- The Negotiators
- The British Government
- British Government Departments
- The European Parliament
- The European Commission
- The governments and parliaments of the EU Member States
