CBI calls for close regulatory alignment with EU

 

In its latest attempt to convince the Government to negotiate a soft Brexit, the CBI has said the economic benefits of diverging from EU rules and regulations will be “vastly outweighed” by the costs of Brexit. Carolyn Fairbairn, the CBI director general, said some areas would benefit from regulatory divergence after Brexit, such as defence and construction procurement, but the “opportunities are limited and are vastly outweighed by the costs” of increased trade friction.
