Destination unknown – United Kingdom faces an uncertain journey

Yesterday’s EU Referendum result, which gave the Leave campaign a majority of 52%, has been received with dismay by many in the business community, as it is now completely uncertain how the framework for economic cooperation between the UK and the EU will develop.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he would step down, to take effect by October this year, and only his successor will be entrusted to start the formal leave negotiations. Whether the Prime Minister will last that long remains to be seen, but he has given the country time to reflect and his party a chance to unite, so that a constructive approach towards redefining the British relationship with its European partners can be developed.

Nevertheless, it is paramount to keep level-headed and cooperate with each other, in order to keep the economic and political effects on the United Kingdom and the European Union under control. After all, be they inside or outside the EU, when it comes to most economic and political issues, all Europeans continue to be in the same boat.

Dr Ulrich Hoppe, Director General of the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce, stressed that for companies involved in European trade nothing will change in the short-term because the regulatory framework will remain the same until Britain has concluded the formal negotiations to leave the EU.

In the upcoming transition period and beyond, the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce will continue to support British and German companies to successfully do business with each other and we are confident that future commercial opportunities will continue to arise for businesses from both countries.
