Executives from leading European companies, including Bank of Ireland, BMW, Bosch and Kingfisher are scheduled to meet UK Prime Minister Theresa May and chancellor Philip Hammond on Thursday. The agenda for the meeting includes planning for the implementation time following the exit of the UK form the European Union due to take place a year from April. They will also discuss May’s vision for the continuing partnership between the EU and the UK.

The companies whose CEOs will be in attendance at the meeting employ over 70,000 people in the UK alone.

Other companies also invited to the meeting include: transportation company Abellio; Maersk, Danish shipping and logistics group; and Wizz Air, the Central and Eastern European airline company.

Despite assurances that the negotiations surrounding Brexit are proceeding well, there is still uncertainty about important areas such as customs arrangements and free trade.
