After months of campaigning the British people decided last Thursday that the United Kingdom should leave the EU. The British Cleaning Council took the decision some months ago to remain neutral, and that is still the case now we know the result.
However, with so much political and economic uncertainty around it’s important to reiterate that the BCC remains committed to its core values and will continue to champion the UK cleaning industry at every opportunity.
Whatever the outcome of the Brexit negotiations, Europe remains a very important market for the UK cleaning industry, and every effort should be made to make the transition to a non EU state as smooth as possible.
There are many EU nationals working in the UK cleaning industry and their hard work and commitment is extremely important for the buoyancy of the industry. The UK cleaning industry also has strong links to partners in Europe, and we are determined to keep those links strong, and we will be extending a very warm welcome to visitors from across Europe at next year’s Cleaning Show at the Excel Arena.
