EU-UK: This is not the time to walk out, negotiations must continue
Following the latest developments in the EU-UK negotiations, the European business community insists that a deal is still possible if both sides remain at the table and committed to reaching a compromise.
BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: "This is the time to act responsibly and try to find an agreement. We expect both sides to stay committed to these negotiations and do everything to find a deal in the weeks ahead. An agreement is still possible and it is the only way to avoid uncertainty and major disruption.
We hope that next week's talks can resume with both sides strongly engaged to deliver an agreement that provides a sound competitive environment for our companies combining good market access with level playing field provisions."
