TheCityUK responds to Brexit speech by The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

TheCityUK responds to the first ‘Road to Brexit’ speech delivered by the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Boris Johnson.

Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, comments:

Boris Johnson is right to underline the need for the UK to strike a deal with the EU that wouldn’t leave it a rule taker, especially given its position as the world’s leading international financial centre. Ultimately the industry wants to see a pro-growth Brexit that is in the interests of people across the UK and the EU, ensures mutual access to the best and brightest talent and sees the UK open for business to trade with the rest of the world. This end-state must be the guiding light for the negotiations.”
