Breakfast Meeting with Belgian top economist Bruno COLMANT, Ph.D., M.S., CFA, FRM, member of the Belgian Royal Academy. This event is hosted by Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Japan. 

Shaping Europe for Tomorrow. Together. When challenges become opportunities.

The European Union is at a crossroad on its path to economic and political unification following the Brexit and the US election: the time has come to rethink the European union. In the frame of a political renewal, a new Europe must, and will, find a new political spirit that will lead to more political, budgetary and monetary cogency and strength. Bruno Colmant will share with us his analysis and outlook for the European Union of tomorrow.
