LONDON (Reuters) - A meeting between Britain's Brexit minister David Davis and corporate leaders on Friday, which was held to rebuild bridges over Britain's departure from the European Union, was "a good first step," according to a manufacturers' lobby group.
"It's clear ministers are listening to business concerns, which we welcome," Terry Scuoler, chief executive of EEF, a group representing manufacturers, said.
"We had an open and frank discussion and we’ve started a process where we will work together to obtain as much clarity and certainty as possible for industry as we prepare to leave the EU," he said.
Employers are pushing harder for a Brexit deal that causes as little disruption as possible after Prime Minister Theresa May failed to win backing from voters for her tough approach to divorce negotiations with the EU in an election last month.
