Walter Boettcher, Colliers International, Chief Economist & Forecaster took place in a Google+ Hangout discussion with MEP Richard Ashworth from the European Conservatives and Reformists Group, along with MEP Michael Cashman from the Group Of Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats to discuss the United Kingdom’s future in Europe.

Colliers is a European business that depends on cross border referrals. We have a very steady flow of people and ideas moving cross border on a daily basis. To fragment the market would fragment our business increase our operational costs and the ability to deliver services seamlessly for global clients. The single market enables us to move rapidly to acquire assets EU wide.

The following people also took part in the programme: Richard Templer, Professor of Chemistry at Imperial College, Director of the UK arm of the Climate KIC (Knowledge and Innovation Community) and Pieter Cleppe, Head of Open Europe Brussels Office.
