BCC response to Chequers summit conclusions
Responding to the statement issued at the conclusion of the Chequers summit, where the Cabinet has agreed its negotiating position for the UK's future relationship with the EU, Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said:
"For Brexit-weary businesses seeking clarity, this agreement brings hope of an end to months of disappointing Westminster in-fighting.
"We welcome the Cabinet's collective decision to prioritise trade and economic stability under the Prime Minister's leadership. For business, there is strength in unity as the UK seeks to develop a new relationship with the EU.
"As Chambers of Commerce have repeatedly argued, the priority must be to deliver clear and unequivocal answers to the practical, real-world questions businesses face. That remains the key test for the intense and complex negotiations that lie ahead."
