At the top of the agenda was sustainability (on which topic the BCC launched a working group in February 2022) and promoting ongoing business relations between Luxembourg and the UK.

Chairman Daniel EischenDaniel Eischen quoted Japanese Buddhist priest and poet Yoshida Kenko on the importance of slowing down, looking around and seeing where a lasting impact can be made. “The brief dayfly dies before evening; summer’s cicada knows neither spring nor autumn. What a glorious luxury it is to taste life to the full for even a single year.”
