With the pressure mounting on the Prime Minister to achieve his deal with Europe and the very real prospect of an EU referendum as soon as 23rd or 30th June, DCBC will be gathering a group of experts to debate those issues relating to European Union membership most pertinent to our peninsula’s economy and business planning.

As the European debate gathers momentum, the Devon and Cornwall Business Council presents an exciting live event. Bringing together politicians and the business communities from our region, you will be able to hear and question a panel of SW politicians and business representatives about issues relating to European Union membership most pertinent to our peninsula’s economy and business planning.

The panellists confirmed to date include: Sir Graham Watson (former MEP), William (The Earl of) Dartmouth MEP, Prof. Anne Carlisle (Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Falmouth University), Alex Stevens (Regional Policy Manager, NFU SW) and Tim Jones (Chairman, DCBC)

The event is to be chaired by former BBC Spotlight Presenter and ITV Business Reporter, Christopher Slade – so please come ready to participate.
