Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:

“It appears that we’re on the cusp of a much-needed agreement. This shows a deal can be done and businesses across the Continent will be watching this weekend’s EU Summit closely.

“The progress made is a credit to both sets of negotiators. But hard work lies ahead. A 20-page vision needs to become a 2000-page agreement that secures trade and jobs before the spectre of no deal can be put to rest.”
