The CBI has commented on the UK’s departure from the EU.
Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:
“Today the UK leaves the EU, but our future prosperity remains connected.
“Despite the challenges of the last three years, together we have made progress. No deal has been avoided and a year of status quo gives time to shape that new relationship.
“Now the real work begins. It’s time to focus on the future and build a new relationship with Europe.
“This can reflect our shared values and mutual interest, and support bold global trade ambitions.”
