Position: Brexit referendum UK – The EU needs to continue

Statement by Olaf Koch, CEO METRO GROUP

“Europe is not just an episode – Europe is the future”

“A narrow majority of the British population has voted in favour of the U.K.’s exit from the EU. This is highly regrettable and an incisive event for European development. It is now vital to remain economically and politically level-headed. The EU needs to continue to develop and set the course for the future. The Brexit has by no means changed my personal conviction of the meaningfulness and the advantages of the European model for society, culture and the economy, and every effort has to be made so that we as Europeans can move even closer together. Europe is not just an episode – Europe is the future.”
