Adapt to the changing world of public procurement law
The world of public procurement is changing, presenting challenges such as changes to regulation, evolving caselaw, innovation, and new theories of extracting value from procurement.
Political upheaval presents further challenges. Brexit, CETA, EU-Japan, EAC, and a host of new trade agreements will see the size (and shape) of public procurement following EU rules change drastically.
Join us to gain vital insight from leading public officials, contractors and practitioners, as well as the OECD and European Commission.
