While Brexit may understandably invoke negative sentiment and some of us are worried about the unclear outcome, the United Kingdom voted “leave” and the process of exiting the European Union has started a year ago. Stefaan de Rynck, Senior Advisor to Michel Barnier, Chief EU Negotiator for Brexit, came to London to provide a state of play on the Brexit negotiations.
