As part of the Legatum Institute's Business Forum, the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, David Davis, expanded on the strategy for Brexit negotiations, the most important and sensitive task for the UK Government in the coming months. 

He confirmed the Government's intention to trigger Article 50 at the end of March 2017, begining the two year period of negotiation with the EU and that their intention was to “minimise the costs and maximise the benefits” of whatever the relationship would be in the future.

We were extremely grateful for the support of the BVCA for this event
