BdB calls for progress and clarity in the negotiations in a new position paper
The Association of German Banks’ new position paper sets out its calls for future cooperation between the European Union and the United Kingdom in the financial sector. In the BdB’s opinion, given the stagnating negotiations with London, the only way to guarantee the smooth transition for financial services is through an agreement on a free trade agreement and complementing equivalence decisions.

Die Uhr tickt, das Ende der Übergangsphase rückt immer näher, Anzeichen für relevante Fortschritte in den Verhandlungen gibt es jedoch nicht.

BCCG fordert Verlängerung der Brexit-Übergangsphase
Am 30. Juni enden planmäßig die Brexit-Verhandlungen zwischen
Großbritannien und der Europäischen Union. Aber die Gespräche stecken in der Sackgasse, Großbritannien und die EU beharren auf ihren jeweiligen Positionen. „Doch uns läuft die Zeit davon“, warnt der Präsident der British Chamber of Commerce in Germany (BCCG), Michael Schmidt. „Wenn bis September keine Einigung erreicht wird, ist eine Ratifizierung durch die Parlamente der Regierungsstaaten kaum erreichbar. Ebenso wird es für die Regierungen zeitlich unmöglich, ggf. erreichte Kompromisse rechtzeitig in Gesetzestexte und Vertragsformulierungen umzusetzen. Für Unternehmen würde es chaotisch werden.“
