£50billion invested in the UK and 44,000 new jobs since the Brexit vote. Firms from across the world are continuing to bring business to Britain despite the referendum result where we opted to leave. According to fresh analysis from a pro-Leave campaign group, firms from all over the world are continuing to bring business to Britain after our vote to quit the bloc.
And even more jobs and investment could be on the cards as some firms are delaying making decisions until they have more information on our Brexit vote deal. Some businesses have made announcements of investment but without giving specific figures too. Chairwoman Gisela Stuart, a former Labour MP and prominent Leave campaigner, said: “In last year’s referendum the Remain campaign told the British people that the price for taking back control from Brussels would be plummeting investment and skyrocketing unemployment.
“With every day, week and month that passes, our departure from the EU grows ever closer and Project Fear looks ever more far-fetched as businesses announce investment after investment into the UK. “Workers and businesses will continue to prosper once we’ve left the EU as we begin to strike our own free trade deals with growing economies around the world, spreading wealth and creating jobs throughout the UK.”
Who invested after the Brexit vote?
Companies from Tata Steel to Jaguar Land Rover to Google and Amazon have all announced plans to expand their operations in Britain in future. The news comes the day after a separate study showed that a clean Brexit could mean households will be £40 a week better off after the Brexit vote results.
If tariffs were slashed on goods, the price of food and other products will tumble. Britain’s economy could enjoy a Brexit boost worth £135billion a year, according to a glowing assessment by a group of 16 leading economists.
They say there is mounting evidence that quitting Europe’s trade barriers will transform our prospects over the next decade. Britain will enjoy a surge in national output once we leave and an eight per cent fall in prices, according to a 50-page report to be published in the autumn by Economists for Free Trade.
