Yesterday, the Sunday Times published an open letter from the UK’s leading business organisations, including the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), on behalf of the Chamber network.

The leaders of the BCC, CBI, EEF, Institute of Directors and the Federation of Small Business all joined together to call on the Government to ensure that the Brexit negotiations take place in an atmosphere of mutual respect, and that they engage continuously with UK business interests on the many crucial and complex aspects of our future economic relationship with the European Union.

Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive of Norfolk Chamber said:

“As the Government prepares to move forward with Brexit, the aim must be to protect and strengthen our Norfolk economy and the wider UK economy. How to do this, means working in real partnership with all businesses, local and national to draw upon on expertise.

The challenge for such a partnership is for key influencers to agree and work towards a common goal.  The proactive behaviour from the leaders of the British Chambers of Commerce, alongside the four UK-wide business organisations, who collectively have a great many people across the region has resulted in the formulating, agreeing and submitting of a joint statement to Government on the UK’s future relationship with the European and expressing clearly the principles for our economic success and prosperity.”
