The head of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Roberto Azevedo is the latest hgh-profile figure to offer his opinion on a possible Brexit and what the implications could be. Some interesting comments are as follows:
- Unilateral free trade option proposed by some Brexit campaigners unlikely to be politically feasible
- After Brexit, not only Britain but also the EU would need to renegotiate its relationship with the rest of the WTO
- Impossible to tell how long Britain’s trade talks could take after Brexit. Could be years or decades
The GBPUSD has recovered the majority of its early losses and is now down only 0.10% on the day.
