Join the Greater Houston Partnership for its Business Beyond Borders "Go Beyond Series" on Friday, March 29, 2019. The date of the two-year deadline of negotiations for Britain to leave the European Union and still no one knows how it will happen, if at all. Could Brexit be cancelled, delayed or could there be another referendum?
On this momentous day we will discuss what triggered the referendum, what has happened since and the future outcomes and implications for the EU, Great Britain, global trade and implications for Houston.
