As the date of a UK referendum on European Union (EU) membership approaches, British Euro-sceptics are busy drumming up support in favour of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU. As the arguments against such a move are primarily of an economic nature, we wondered what the business community thinks about this. To answer this question for us, the Economist Intelligence Unit carried out a survey for us, the results of which you can read here now.
Main findings of our survey:
- Four fifth majority of British and German Business representatives against Brexit
- In case of a Brexit decreases in revenues, investments and jobs are prophesized
- Nearly a third of Business would either decrease or relocate capacities away from the UK
