THIS EVENT HAS CONCLUDED
The San Francisco Cork Sister City is delighted to present an in-depth discussion to better understand Ireland's view on Brexit with only weeks left in the transition period.
We are honored to have with us, Simon MacAllister, Strategy and Transactions Partner in EY, who leads their Brexit response on the island of Ireland.

The seemingly endless negotiations to rip Britain out of the EU continue! There are five main policy areas we need to watch Goods Trade, Services Trade, Immigration, Data and the Northern Ireland Protocol. The new relationship and agreements between the EU and the UK should become clear when the negotiations are complete at the end of November so this session could be perfectly timed! There will be changes after the transition period, whether or not an agreement is reached – what might they be and what do we need to prepare for in 2021? What impact, if any, will the incoming Biden Administration have on the final deal? This promises to be a lively and informative discussion and will allow you an opportunity to ask your pressing Brexit questions.

With 24 different countries and 47 nationalities represented, over 7500 participants took part in the Cork's Marathon, Half Marathon, Team Relay, Inter-Services Championships and Youth Challenge.
The San Francisco - Cork sister city relationship was formed in May 1984 by then Mayor Dianne Feinstein. In the more than 30 years of this sister city partnership, changes have taken place in virtually all areas of the community - sports, art, culture, education, government and business - all of which have contributed ti increased cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.
