EFAMA Statement on result of UK referendum on EU membership
 
Brussels, 24 June 2016:
 
The decision today means that there is now less uncertainty about the direction this issue will ultimately take. Nonetheless, the practical consequences cannot be clearly identified before a proper and longer term impact assessment has been made.
 
EFAMA intends to spend time consulting with its members across Europe to gather feedback and reactions, and to determine which next steps will be needed in due course.
