BRINGING EUROPE CLOSER - 26 November 2020

Online

As the UK leaves the Single Market at the end of this year, many Irish businesses are re-evaluating their supply chains and their trading partnerships, and many are beginning to look at the potential of doing business in the rest of Europe for the first time. 

Gaining direct access to mainland Europe is increasingly important for businesses, as concerns grow over potential delays for companies sending products via the UK landbridge. Earlier this year, the Port of Cork facilitated the establishment of a new direct Ro-Con shipping route from Cork to Zeebrugge in Belgium, bringing Europe closer and bringing SMEs within 550 km of 60% of the EU’s purchasing power. 

Join the discussion to learn more about the new direct connections between Cork and Zeebrugge, and how this can be a first step for your business in bringing Europe closer.

Speakers include:

  • Ambassador Pierre-Emmanuel De Bauw, Belgian
    Ambassador to Ireland 
  • Conor Mowlds, Chief Commercial Officer, Port of Cork
  • Lieve Duprez, Chief Officer Shortsea, Port of Zeebrugge
  • Jacques Vanhoucke, Trade and Investment Commissioner, Flanders Investment and Trade 

This event is being hosted by Cork Chamber and the Enterprise Europe Network in association with the Port of Cork, Belgian Embassy, Flanders Investment and Trade & Port of Zeebrugge.
