Article 50 starts a process “absolutely crucial for the UK’s future success”

Union Jack and EU flagCommenting on the triggering of Article 50 to start the UK’s process of exiting the EU, Huw Evans, ABI Director General, said:

“This is a seminal moment and one that marks the start of a process that is absolutely crucial for the UK’s future success. The next two years won’t be straightforward, but securing a deal that works for the UK and the EU 27 is in everyone’s interests. The ABI will be working hard to help the insurance and long-term savings industry overcome the challenges and grasp the opportunities offered by Brexit. To do this we must build on the last 40 years of regulatory, commercial and political partnership and find new ways to work, trade, travel and co-operate with our friends and neighbours in Europe.“
