Danny McCoy, chief executive of the Irish Business and Employers’ Confederation (Ibec), said that “while the EU27 are in a very strong macroeconomic position right now, they will not be immune from the outcome of the Brexit discussion”.

Therefore, Brexit should not be looked at “firmly as an issue for Britain right now” but as a “future of Europe issue,” he told the event, which discussed whether European business can influence the Brexit outcome.

The panel was made up of representatives from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), the Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe (COBCOE), BritishAmerican Business, German industry association VDMA and Ibec.

The EURACTIV event coincided the EU Summit dinner in Brussels where Prime Minister Theresa May urged the EU to start trade negotiations and to begin plans for the post-Brexit transition period.
