CBI comments on latest round of Brexit talks

Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:

“With negotiations at such a vital juncture, talk of a deadlock will be deeply concerning to many businesses in the UK and the rest of Europe.

“Both sides must show the leadership and determination to get the talks moving more quickly because jobs and investment across Europe depend upon it.

“The need to agree transition and start moving to discussions on the final deal by the end of the year is of paramount importance to firms.

 “There must also be a clear guarantee of the right to remain for citizens in both the UK and EU27 and bring to an end the uncertainty hanging over the future status of four million people.”
