Commenting on the announcement from the Prime Minister that the Cabinet has backed the draft Withdrawal Agreement, Liz Cameron OBE, Director and Chief Executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:
“After two and a half years, business communities across Scotland and the UK, will welcome the Cabinet-backed draft Withdrawal Agreement. Overcoming this first hurdle has been achieved, but this will continue to remain a long journey.
“It is now critical that Scottish business gets an opportunity to look closely at the detail of the agreement. The assessment of these proposals and understanding the implications for business is a priority for the Chamber Network, and must be for politicians on all sides of the debate.
“Ultimately, business and government must continue to collaborate and work closely together, making sure businesses in Scotland, UK and Europe continue to trade as freely as possible.”
