    MAC Roundtable: Brexit, Immigration and Entrepreneurship

    Friday, October 20, 2017 Penningtons Manches LLP, London

    In July 2017, the government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to advise on the economic and social impacts of the UK’s exit from the European Union and also on how the UK’s immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy.

    As part of this, the MAC is seeking the views of a wide range of interested parties from all parts of the UK: (e.g. businesses, employers, recruiters, trade unions, academics, think tanks, representative bodies, government departments, etc).

    Find out more about the call for evidence here. This roundtable will be a chance for entrepreneurs to influence the MAC. Please get in touch at events@tenentrepreneurs.org to enquire about a place.
