Following the Queen’s speech Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,
This Queen’s Speech includes a welcome focus on our industry’s future competitiveness. This is especially important against a backdrop of challenging global economic conditions. The prominence given to financial and legal services through two of the announced Bills recognises these will remain a key underpinning of the UK’s future economic success, as will access to global talent, championing global free trade, infrastructure development and regional economic development.
“It is now vital that the UK and the EU move forward together to secure a Brexit withdrawal agreement which will minimise economic disruption and allow us to move on to the shared priorities of the future economic relationship.”
