AmCham would like to invite you for the breakfast discussion with the governor of the Czech National Bank Jiri Rusnok on CNB Outlook after Brexit, to be held on April 24 at the Marriott hotel, V Celnici 8, 110 00 Praha 1. 

According to the CNB Global Economic Outlook in February 2019, the current economic outlook is being affected by several major factors. The most important include the slowdown of the Chinese economy, the increased level of protectionism in global trade, the completion of the normalisation of interest rates by the Fed and the repeatedly postponed start to increases in the ECB’s interest rates. 

However, the fast-approaching and unfortunately still unclear Brexit is without doubt the most resonant economic issue at present. A disorderly Brexit could have very tangible impacts on both the micro level (for individual firms) and the macro level (exchange rates, GDP, inflation).

Entrance fee: 800 CZK + VAT.
