West London Business – West London’s business leadership forum – made this statement in response to the Brexit referendum vote.
Andrew Dakers, Chief Executive of West London Business, said:

“The governor of the Bank of England has reassured the markets this morning that the fundamentals of our financial system are sound.   As a location, West London remains one of the best places in the world to do business.  West London is exceptionally well connected by air, road and rail.   We have a highly skilled workforce that is the most productive in London.  We are also home to some of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and Higher Education institutions.”

“In the weeks ahead we will work with the local business community and our West London Alliance partner local authorities to ensure that the specific business implications arising from Brexit, and any support needed, is fully understood to ensure long term economic growth is sustained.”
