AMCHAM Gibraltar is working closely with AMCHAM UK and all of the AMCHAM's in Europe to develop relationships through the substantial, AMCHAM global platform and network. Given Brexit, we feel it is now more important than ever to open and foster new meaningful relationships for our Gibraltar AMCHAM Members and key stakeholders at large.
Gibraltar must “bet on its entrepreneurs” and foster innovation to remain competitive in a global economy, US corporate and political advisor Juan Verde said yesterday.
Drawing from past experiences where innovative ideas have boosted political campaigns in which he has been involved, Mr Verde called President Barack Obama a true entrepreneur and detailed why Hillary Clinton was unable to clinch the title of president.
AmCham Gibraltar hosted an educational roundtable on the topic of Philanthropy, with Randi Weaver of Good Giving Consulting, on the 4th of May at the Wessex Lounge.
Randi led a thought-provoking session about the essentials of Philanthropy: why people give and how donors, be they individuals, families or companies, can feel more satisfied about their charitable giving. The event was well-supported by AmCham Gibraltar members, including marketing managers and people focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility.
The event was covered by GBC news:
With the advent of a hard Brexit looming, the Gibraltar-American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Gibraltar), the Gibraltar-Israel Chamber of Commerce (Gibrael) and the Gibraltar Chamber of Commerce have come together to network and demonstrate unity by holding an exclusive wine-tasting event for their members at the La Sala Lounge, in the Sunborn Hotel. The event was sponsored by Savills Gibraltar. Wines were supplied by Lewis Stagnetto Ltd. and featured a talk by wine expert Kevin Aikens.
The President of the Gibraltar America Chamber of Commerce says he not at all concerned about trade links between Gibraltar and the US.
Donald Trump has declared that he wants to do away with trade deals with Europe, however, James Lazry has pointed out that Mr Trump wants to strengthen the relationship with the UK, and AmCham is close to solidifying a syndication with Amcham UK, so this could in fact be good news.
