Summary of The Government's Negotiating Objectives for Exiting the EU
Prime Minister's Office of the United Kingdom Government © 2017
British prime minister Theresa May charts the course toward the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union.
The first quarter of 2017 marks the start of Britain’s exit negotiations with the European Union. Following months of speculation about the UK’s Brexit strategy, Prime Minister Theresa May delivered a much-anticipated speech outlining her goals and objectives going into what will likely be a long, drawn-out negotiation process. May strikes a hopeful and conciliatory tone, while making clear that Britain won’t agree to a deal that violates its economic and security interests. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends May’s landmark speech to policy makers and business executives with a stake in the EU and UK markets.
In this summary, you will learn
- What principles the United Kingdom will base its Brexit strategy on;
- How the UK government seeks to make post-Brexit Britain “stronger, fairer” and more “global”; and
- How the UK government plans to implement the negotiated post-Brexit agreement.
