U.K. Steps Up Talks With Industry as Brexit Disruption Closes In
In this article
The U.K. government is intensifying talks with industry as it seeks to avert Brexit disruption at year-end, with companies facing upheaval even if Britain and the EU sign a trade deal.
Ministers will hold weekly meetings with the country’s five biggest business groups and particularly-affected sectors to discuss Brexit preparations, the Cabinet Office said in an e-mailed statement. The government has previously expressed concern that many firms have their “heads in the sand” and are ill-prepared for Brexit.
“We recognize that this is a challenging time for everyone,” Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove said in the statement. “We are determined to support businesses to be ready for 1 January 2021 and beyond.”
U.K. PM Boris Johnson says he’s serious about walking away from Brexit talks without a trade deal.
