- On Brexit with Consul General Michael Howells
May 15, 2019
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
It’s been almost three years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, but the Brexit situation continues to be in flux. Prime Minister Theresa May could not secure Parliamentary approval for her Brexit plan before the original March 29th deadline. So now, the EU and UK have agreed to extend the deadline to leave to October 31, 2019.
What’s at stake for the UK, the EU, and the rest of the world? Does Scotland have anything to say about Brexit? And what do we mean by “Irish backstop”?
Come join us on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, for an in-depth discussion of the ongoing Brexit drama and its impacts. We will be joined by Michael Howells, the UK Consul General in Los Angeles.
Mr. Howells is the senior representative of the UK government in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Hawaii. In this role, he promotes trade and investment, scientific cooperation, creative and media collaborations and educational partnerships between the UK and the southwestern United States.
