    Greetings, 

    Our Brexit debate on October 23rd garnered great feedback from all who attended.  Whatever your views on Brexit, it's clearly going to have a significant impact on business in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.  Attendees got firsthand insight from a distinguished panel, including representatives from the UK Government's Department of International Trade (DIT).  Watch out for more events like this and come along to keep abreast of current thinking by networking with your peers in BABC-GA. 


    November has a sporting focus for BABC.  Our International Golf Classic on November 7th is a great opportunity to entertain clients and colleagues; there are prizes and sponsorship opportunities available.  Then on November 13th, BABC-GA will be playing cricket against the Indian chamber team at Ogelthorpe University. Reach out to Duncan Sandy's if you're interested in playing. 


    Finally, some BABC members will be joining the British Consulate in the Atlanta Pride Parade this Sunday. Britain is one of the most progressive countries in the world for LGBT rights and a welcoming place for any one to do business.  Meet an the W Atlanta Downtown from 8.30am on Sunday if you'd like to show your support. 


    Thanks for your support.  I hope to see you at a BABC event soon.

    Regards,

    Greetings, 

     

    We held our Annual Garden Party on September 8 and it was a great time, as usual. During this event, British Consul General Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford reiterated the importance of BABC-GA as the UK continues to grapple with the impact of the Brexit vote. We express our gratitude to Jeremy for his ongoing support and opening his residence to us for this special event. You may view photos from the event by clicking here.
     
    The First Minister of Wales, Rt. Hon Carwyn Jones, made a visit to the US last week and the Board of BABC-GA hosted a lunch for him.  We shared our experiences of doing business in the southeast, and he shared examples of Welsh companies expanding over here.  The drive of the Welsh government to expand business into our region and offer attractive incentives to companies considering Wales as a European base is a reflection of the increasing maturity of Wales as an excellent business location.  We anticipate doing more with the Welsh Office over the coming months and years.  Please see below for more information about his visit. 
     
    Our Events Committee has been diligently planning several interesting events for the remainder of 2016. More information about each of these is below. I look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon. 

    Regards,
