Brexit LIVE: Britain announces new visa change in major immigration shake-up | Politics | News
The UK’s next prime minister “must take Brexit by the horns” and ensure that the country is transformed into a global investment powerhouse, according to international investor Dale Wood.
Speaking to Express.co.uk as Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss battle it out to replace Boris Johnson, he warned that people on all sides of the debate are unhappy with “certain aspects” of the current Brexit trade deal.
He continued: “Just like with any business, governments need to take the right approach.
“Boris Johnson got Brexit done but there are clearly kinks in his deal – you can see that by the fact that people on all sides are unhappy with certain aspects of it.
“That doesn’t mean it can’t be amended and I would hope that his successor makes that their top priority when they take office next month.
“They must take Brexit by the horns and ensure that the UK is transformed into a global investment powerhouse.
“Doing that would prove all the naysayers wrong and address the low productivity growth which has been a problem in the UK for years.
“I have no preference who wins the race but myself and other investors across the world will be looking to see what changes they implement and how it affects business.
“We are the drivers of growth and countries often fall over themselves to get external investment.
“The UK’s prime minister will no doubt be aware of that but whether they act upon it remains to be seen.”
