BDI President Dieter Kempf calls on the British government to finally make clear statements on their withdrawal arrangements at the start of the third round of Brexit negotiations. The proposals for customs exemptions would be disproportionately bureaucratic and impractical. Kempf hardly expects significant progress without a coordinated government approach.

“The British government continues to lack a clear course. Despite declarations of unity from British cabinet members, there is no coordinated government approach to be seen. These are poor preconditions for the third round of negotiations, and significant progress is hardly to be expected. The British proposals for customs exemptions would create disproportionately large bureaucratic burdens. These ideas are impractical for businesses. The United Kingdom must finally make clear statements on their withdrawal arrangements.”
