German Business Chief Calls Possibility of Post-Brexit Barriers “Very, Very Foolish”

MARKUS KERBER

Markus Kerber, head of the BDI (Germany’s answer to the CBI), is calling on his country to not risk damaging trade with punitive post-Brexit tariffs.

The BDI would urge politicians on both sides to come up with a trade regime that enables us to uphold and maintain the levels of trade we have”
