TABC Position on UK Referendum on Membership in the EU

Members of the Trans-Atlantic Business Council (TABC) strongly support the UK’s continued membership in the European Union.  From a business perspective, we believe this will continue to be beneficial for the UK, for the EU, for the U.S. and for transatlantic trade and investment relations.  EU membership creates considerable opportunities for the UK to support efforts to create jobs, growth, and global competitiveness.  The UK is an important and effective voice in the EU enterprise, innovation and regulatory reform debates, including in the areas of services, trade, energy, life sciences, and digital policies.  Finally, the UK is a supporter of an ambitious EU-U.S. trade and investment partnership agreement and of a deepening EU Single Market.  TABC members share these ambitions and believe that the EU and UK will accomplish more by the UK remaining a member of the EU.
