View from the BBCD penthouse: Brexit’s a long way behind!
The AGM of the British Chamber of Commerce in Denmark (BCCD) at the Radisson Collection on Friday May 18 gave its chief executive Gareth Garvey a chance to reflect on what has been a challenging few years, with Brexit and then the pandemic, and then to raise a glass to a bright future of regrounding the special relationship between Denmark and the UK
The guest of honour was the new British ambassador, Emma Hopkins, who has taken on the role of patron of the BCCD. Also in attendance at the meeting were BCCD chair Klaus Søgaard (right) and Hans Hermansen, the CEO of CPH POST (centre right)
Ambassador Hopkins brought plenty of mirth to the proceedings when she handed out facemasks adorned with the Dannebrog and Union Jack
