UKinbound urges government on Brexit negotiations

UK TRADE BODY UKinbound has welcomed the new prime minister, Theresa May, in a letter which included four key ‘asks’ for her to consider in the country’s exit negotiations with the European Union.

They are:
  1. A strong narrative promoting the UK as a welcoming destination. At a time of great uncertainty for the UK economy, UKinbound has emphasized the importance of demonstrating that Britain remains an outward-facing nation open for business and which will continue to welcome visitors from around the world. 
  2. Continued, tariff-free access to the Single Market to ensure the free movement of goods, finance, and people around the EU. 
  3. Continued access to the EU’s Open Skies Agreement. 
  4. An assurance regarding residency for its members’ employees. UKinbound’s latest Business Barometer survey revealed that more than 30% of its members’ workforce are EU migrants. 
UKinbound CEO Deirdre Wells OBE said: ‘Although the negotiating blueprint is far from clear for the pending Brexit, we hope that these four key ‘asks’ to the government will support and ensure the maximum growth for our industry.

‘These are issues our members feel are important in maintaining a relationship with the EU. We are a resilient industry and I am confident that our vibrant industry can overcome these challenges we face.’
