As the British government moves ahead — as it should because it is doing what the people voted for in that June 2016 referendum — with the so-called Brexit, various institutions are weighing in on what a departure from the European Union will mean.

The Times says European businesses are being warned Britain needs to be avoided as Brexit negotiations are completed.

Roland Berger, the German rival to the big American consultancies such as McKinsey and Bain & Co, is urging clients to adopt a “flexible” and “light footprint” approach to Britain.

Businesses that operate in Britain are concerned about the impact of tariffs and other barriers to their supply chains, while “large capital expenditure investments that are not easy to move” are being postponed, according to the consultancy’s chief executive.
