BCC comments on UK trade negotiating strategy

3rd March 2020

Commenting on the government’s trade negotiating strategy with the European Union, published today, BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:

“Now that the shadow-boxing is over, firms are impatient for negotiations to begin in earnest.

“Businesses are pragmatic, but need the UK-EU negotiations to deliver clarity on the many practical, real-world details that will affect their day-to-day operations for years to come.

“Government must ensure business communities are active participants in the negotiations, and must draw on their expertise to shape an agreement that delivers for the whole of the UK.”
