EU membership has made the UK the place to do business

  • Increased trade and competition improved our productivity and number of jobs over 40 years
  • More foreign investment attracted to Britain
  • 3 million jobs linked to our trade with other EU members
  • Industrial leaders – CBI, Chambers of Commerce, Small Businesses, Society of Motor Manufacturers, Airbus, the TUC and many more – all say they need us to be in a very close union for customs and services as next best thing to being in the EU’s single market
