Webinar | Europe Today! An economical & geopolitical outlook
On the 3rd of February, we had the pleasure to join Europe Today, an event organized by European Chambers. The distinguished panel introduced the current state of Europe. Rem Korteweg introduced the geopolitical standing point of Europe through examples such as the situation in Ukraine as well as the growing impact of Russia, China, and the United States on the European Union. Marieke Blom on the other hand gave a more economic viewpoint from topics such as taxonomy. The moderator of the event was Stefan Wijers. The main message of the event was that once again geopolitical events have a direct causality to the economical situation of Europe.
