Setting the right priorities after Brexit

BDA, MEDEF and BDI on the outcome of the British referendum.

The British citizens have made the democratic and unequivocal decision to demand for their country to leave the EU. While French and German business leaders accept this decision, they are fully aware, that this will expose Europe to great turbulence.

MEDEF BDI and BDA are committed to do everything in their power to now mobilize our unique European capacities. Europe must resolutely come together, regain confidence and go on to the offensive.

The French-German motor of European integration is needed more than ever. Its historical power to unite Europe through reconciliation, the common will for peace, prosperity and social security for its people and societies needs to regain momentum. The task is to set the right priorities for more European integration in key areas and to restraint in small matters, that can better be handled on national levels.
