BERLIN, August 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Dieter Kempf, President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI) makes the following comments at the start of the third round of Brexit negotiations:
"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."
The Federation of German Industries (BDI) is the umbrella organization of German industry and industry-related services. It speaks for 36 trade associations and more than 100,000 enterprises with around 8 million employees. Membership is voluntary. 15 organizations in the regional states represent the interests of industry at the regional level.
