The UK Elections - Statement from BABC CEO Jeffries Briginshaw
“Yesterday’s election has added to the uncertain business environment our Members operate in; it is therefore of the utmost importance that a new Government is formed as soon as possible.
BAB Members, representing leading British firms and major American investors in the UK, stand ready to help the next Government build a strong, fair and globally competitive Britain. Ensuring that Britain remains a top destination to live, work and invest can only be achieved with a strong, robust and innovative economy that must include a positive vision for the UK’s future relationship with the European Union.
The US-UK economic relationship is one of the strongest in the World, accounting for a record $48bn in US foreign direct investment into the UK in 2016. To ensure the continued strength of this integral economic relationship, it is essential that the next Government work to quickly end this uncertainty, and provide clarity to the business community in both countries.”
