The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has released a new report outlining the views of its members on the UK’s EU membership ahead of the EU referendum. Open Europe’s Raoul Ruparel digs into the report.
21 October 2015
The latest CBI report on the UK’s EU membership is a bit of a mixed bag. There are some signs of improvement but its remains superficial and prone to clichés. Compared to research from the British Chambers of Commerce and the Institute of Directors the push for reform sounds rather hollow, with the report itself lacking depth and insight into what businesses actually believe or want to see from the EU. It also falls foul of a number of questions Open Europe posed for the Remain campaign last week. Overall reading it you are left rather underwhelmed and with the distinct feeling that the Remain camp will have to broaden out beyond the CBI if it is to bring new, hard hitting analysis to the campaign and convince undecided swing voters. Below are some of the key points, both good and bad, in the report.
