The British people have made their choice. We accept their decision – even though with much regret. It is now essential on both the UK and the EU-27 to swiftly come to an agreement that keeps as much of the benefits of the single market intact as possible. Beyond the economy, we need a peaceful, stable and democratic Europe to thrive. The UK and the EU must collaborate to secure this future.
The relationship between the UK and the rest of the EU remains hugely important to all of the parties. 50% of the UK’s trade is with the EU 27 and Britain is a large, vibrant and strong market for the EU 27.
During the period of uncertainty that will accompany the negotiations, the British Chamber has a key role to play in helping our members navigate the challenges that result from this decision and inform the important negotiation of the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
