UK Businesses Looking to Move Jobs and Production Abroad After Brexit

UK Businesses Looking to Move Jobs and Production Abroad After Brexit

A recent survey was undertaken by CBI (The Confederation of British Industry). The survey revealed that an increasing number of UK companies are creating back up plans with regard to jobs and production to move overseas due to uncertainty surrounding Brexit. But what does this mean for the UK in the long term?

The Economy

With 56% of businesses that were surveyed preparing to adjust supply chains abroad. “Unless a withdrawal agreement is locked down by December”, jobs will be lost. This will have a knock-on effect on the UK economy.

During an interview, Nicky Morgan, a Conservative MP who chairs the Commons Treasury Committee, said: “tremendous damage” is being caused to banks and other large financial services in London due to the current negotiation stand-off.
