UK Chamber of Shipping: CEO statement on EU outcome

June 25, 2016 - After months of debate the outcome of the EU referendum is now known. The UK has voted to leave the European Union. The final results are 51.9% for Leave and 48.1% for Remain. As we look to the next steps, now is the time for rational and strategic thinking. We are now beginning the process of leaving the European Union, and it is fundamentally important for the UK economy that this process be carefully managed as we move forward. You will see the UK Chamber's initial statement, in which we call for a measured approach, with no rush to evoke Article 50 and have also called for a Free Trade Commission to be established. The chamber has also highlighted a number of key policy areas that must be addressed as we move forward. The UK Chamber will now continue to build upon our existing analysis and will work quickly to further understand what the outcome will mean for the shipping industry. We will work tirelessly to ensure that the needs of our members are heard throughout the coming process and that the industry is not adversely impacted.
