“The animal spirits of the corporate sector took a battering in the wake of the referendum and, three months on, Brexit continues to loom large for the UK corporate sector.

Ian Stewart, chief economist at Deloitte
“The UK has built an enviable business environment which values enterprise and wealth creation. The UK’s move up the World Economic Forum’s competitiveness league, to seventh place, underscores the strength of our economy.
“The central challenge for the UK government is to ensure that the Brexit settlement enhances these strengths”.
