Even in the face of several dilemmas in relation to Brexit, free trade and the refugee crisis, Anders Samuelsen, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, talked positively about the future of the EU when he visited CBS to take part in a debate with students from the BSc in European Business.

“As long as we trade – we don’t shoot each other,” he proclaimed, as a way of highlighting the importance of free trade and how it makes countries more interconnected and dependent on one another.

Anders Samuelsen had come to spend some time with the students at CBS, as he aims to engage the public in a broader debate about the EU. Including students.

“It gives me an idea of what is at stake here, and what’s important to the next generation when it comes to the EU,” he says.

Third-year Semester European Business students, Marc Skipper Nielsen and Clara Frydenberg Østgaard, were present at the debate and were excited about the minister’s visit.
