Statement from the UK Chamber of Shipping on the Brexit deal

Date: 27/11/2018

The UK Chamber of Shipping has welcomed reports that the UK Government and the European Union have reached agreement on the UK’s withdrawal.

Bob Sanguinetti, CEO of the UK Chamber of Shipping said:

“From the outset we have said that maintaining frictionless trade between the UK and the European Union is the absolute priority. This Withdrawal Agreement appears to achieve that, to the benefit of businesses and consumers alike.

“We recognise the political difficulty this agreement will cause – any such agreement would do the same. But with little more than four months to go before the end of the Article 50 process, MPs should think very carefully before attempting to halt this progress.

“The alternative is a No-Deal scenario that would bring about unprecedented challenges and could do untold damage both to the UK and the EU.”

The UK Chamber maintains a politically neutral position on Brexit and seeks to maintain the best interests of its members, no matter what deal is struck.

Since the referendum in June 2016, we have published a series of position papers that outline our views, and have been vocal in the press, calling for what we think will maintain our top three Brexit priorities, which are:

To preserve the existing ease of doing business,
To ensure UK business has access to the world’s brightest talent and
To reform domestic maritime policy to put the UK on the best possible footing after Brexit.
