U.K. Tech Organizations Warn of Negative Brexit Consequences

Steve Ranger writes for ZDNet, “As the [U.K.] government outlines its plans for a Brexit trade agreement with the European Union, tech companies are worried that they may be left out in the cold by the deal.” He continues:

Prime Minister Theresa May is championing her vision of how Brexit will look. Under this, the UK will generally follow EU rules and regulations concerning goods, although the UK wants to reserve the right not to go along with European rules for all goods.

For services, the UK government hopes to have more flexibility to set its own rules—even though, importantly, it acknowledges that this will mean the UK won't have as much access to European markets as it does now.

But tech industry body techUK has already warned that if the final Brexit deal sees the UK effectively outside of the Single Market for services, this would put the UK’s digital economy at a serious disadvantage compared to their European competitors.
