BusinessEurope welcomes positive step towards orderly Brexit
Today’s decision from President Donald Tusk to schedule a meeting of the European Council on the 25 November opens the way for an orderly exit of the UK from the EU.
BusinessEurope President Pierre Gattaz said: “We welcome the support from the UK Government for the draft Exit agreement reached with the EU and we also welcome today’s decision from President Tusk to schedule the European Council meeting for 25 November. This opens the path for an orderly Exit, a key request from the business community on both sides of the channel. The transition period foreseen in the Exit deal will give time to companies and citizens to prepare and adjust to the new reality. We now hope the draft agreement will be endorsed at political level by both sides and ratified by the respective Parliaments, paving the way for an orderly Brexit.”
