A report from leading business group, the CBI, has stressed that “For business, the benefits of EU membership outweigh the disadvantages.”
The report stresses the benefits of being in the EU, including:
- More customers for business, more growth and more jobs: "The EU single market gives UK business more customers - helping businesses grow and create jobs"
- One set of rules for British businesses to work by, not 28 different sets
- More international investment
- And lower prices and more choice for customers: "Making it easier to trade in the European Union can lower prices... and increase choice for UK consumers"
This important report concludes: "The majority of businesses want to remain in a reformed EU."
