Event description:

Even if Hillary Clinton wins the US Presidential Election, the political revolution that spawned support for Donald Trump is not dead and the political and economic environment in the US may be changing for ever.  

But how will it change? How will it impact Europe? And what is our economic outlook?

Come to this seminar to gain an invaluable insight into these paramount topics.
