North East England Chamber of Commerce response to election result

 

Chamber warns PM not to leave North East in slow lane.

“We look forward to working constructively with Boris Johnson following his election victory and return to 10 Downing Street as Prime Minister. Businesses in our region will be hoping that stability and certainty will now ensue following a period of unprecedented political turmoil.

“Brexit is the number one challenge facing the Government and we continue to be steadfast in our view that a No Deal situation must be avoided at all costs. The Prime Minister must now listen to the views of businesses across the country and work to secure a Brexit outcome that preserves our strong trading relationship with the EU and which does not harm our economic competitiveness.

“Domestically, the warm words we have heard about investment in the North, including in our key infrastructure priorities, must be swiftly translated into actions. Our region cannot afford to be left in the slow lane for years to come.”
