BMW and Airbus warned that they could leave the UK because of uncertainty about Brexit

on Sat Jun 23, 2018 7:23 pm


German manufacturer of cars BMW and French aviation construction company Airbus have declared that they are ready to transfer production outside of Britain if London in the near future will not agree on terms of exit from the European Union.

This is the BBC.

The head of the British branch of BMW Ian Robertson said that the company that manufactures cars in the UK brands Mini and Rolls Royce, is ready to wait until the end of the summer.

"If the clarity ( about the EU-UK economic agreement - Ed. ) Does not appear for the next couple of months, we will begin to prepare a contingency plan... which means that Britain will become less competitive," said he.

At the enterprises of the automobile manufacturer in Britain work about 8 thousand workers.

Airbus Corporation, which employs 14,000 people in Britain, has also warned that it will shift production if Britain leaves the European single market and EU customs union without a transition agreement.

The British government, meanwhile, insists that it will be able to secure a profitable deal, including for the industry.

In the Customs Union, which includes 28 EU member states, the same tariffs apply to goods imported from third countries.

BBC watcher Simon Jack believes that the Airbus statement, though not very pleasing to anyone, was perceived by the government as "a frank and honest statement about what the British economy is awaiting."

At the same time, according to BBC, British Prime Minister Teresa Maye previously ruled out the possibility of staying in a customs union.

Britain officially leaves the European Union on March 29, 2019.

Earlier it was reported that Brexit cost 900 pounds to every British family - that is, the British household income after the referendum has decreased so much.

We will remind you that the final cost of Brexit for Britain will reach 55 billion euros. The country has to pay this sum to the EU by 2064.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that the European Union is restricting the country's actions to impose sanctions on Russia. In his view, after the departure of Britain and the EU, the sanctions policy against Russia will be much more severe.
