George Cowcher at Devon Chamber of Commerce commented on the result of the EU Referendum vote: “Now that the vote has been confirmed, and the people of the UK have voted to leave the EU it is important that the Government provides a clear plan of action for the leaving process. Businesses are in need of stability and reassurance, without arguments or in fighting within political parties of how the leave process should be handled.

Stability and clarity will be of utmost importance in order to prevent any further damage to the UK economy caused by the uncertainty leading up to the EU Referendum vote. Of particular importance should be a focus on ensuring stability for the money markets, particularly relating to the strength of the British Pound, and in interest rates. The Government needs to take these factors into consideration to ensure that the leaving process does not send the UK economy into a downward dip.

The Chamber will be hosting a number of events across the county to discuss the EU impact and the consequences businesses face on leaving the EU, the first of which will be held on Wednesday 6th July, to further lobby for necessary actions to be taken to support the business community. It is of the best interests for the whole of the UK that business is supported throughout this process to ensure that the growth having been seen in previous quarters continues to pull the UK fully out of the recession it has faced for a number of years.

This is a very sensitive time for all businesses and the Chamber is keen to hear from anyone who has particular concerns surrounding the EU referendum result so that these issues can be raised by the Chamber with Government”
