Through the BABC, members have the opportunity to develop valuable business contacts within the British American community and to exchange ideas and information with a cross section of business, trade and governmental interests.
On Thursday, July 14, 2015 David O’Sullivan, European Union Ambassador to the United States of America spent the day in Philadelphia for an official visit. Ambassador O’Sullivan met with state and local government officials, conducted various press interviews, and attended an exclusive luncheon in his honor with British American Business Council (BABC) and Irish American Business Chamber & Network (IABCN) board members at CBS Broadcast Center.
Ambassador O’Sullivan’s arrival in Philadelphia could not have been more perfectly timed. The Greek debt crises and the Iran nuclear deal occurring concurrent to this scheduled meeting leant itself to a highly dynamic discussion about economic and political developments within the European Union. Ambassador O’Sullivan spoke to these global matters as well as the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) – the world’s largest free trade agreement.
