Following the UK’s vote to leave the EU, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) United Kingdom has featured in The Telegraph’s live referendum feed. In the post, Chris Southworth, Secretary General of ICC United Kingdom, states:
“The UK is part of a global economic system and the impact of today’s decision goes far and wide.
“It will take a while to be absorbed – parts of the world are only now waking up to the news – and, while it is easy to get caught-up in the emotions, we must stay calm, take a step back, and carefully assess the impact on global commerce.
“As an organisation, ICC’s focus is on reiterating the importance of trade and investment – trade and investment channels with the EU must remain open, trade flows must remain strong, and we must remember that ratifying trade agreements is the key to encouraging growth and prosperity.”
