A letter from ICC UK’s Secretary General, Chris Southworth, has been published in the Financial Times. In response to the article, ‘Business should assume a hard Brexit’ – and indications that the UK Government will give up membership to the Single Market – the letter discusses the importance of making the case for free trade during Brexit negotiations. Chris explains the benefits that membership of the Single Market brings for UK business and calls for the Government to work hard to minimise red tape at borders. The letter also calls for UK business to communicate with the Government and the electorate to loudly make the case for trade.
