2016-05-17 @ 13:00 - 16:30
The British voters are faced with the choice of leaving or staying within the EU. Regardless of the result, we know that the outcome of the referendum will change the legal, political and economic landscape.

CONSEQUENCES REGARDLESS OF THE RESULT
The outcome will have significant implications for not only the UK, but also for the rest of the European Union. As a non-euro country and close partner to the UK, Sweden is likely to be particularly affected by the vote.
EFFECT ON BUSINESS
What will the impact be in case of a decision to leave the EU? The uncertainties involved affect both Swedish companies present in the UK and UK companies established in Sweden.

Vinge and the British-Swedish Chamber of Commerce have invited individuals that are in a unique position to talk about the consequences of the British vote and discuss the challenges that the British voters and the rest of us within the European Union now face.
