Airbus da un aggiornamento allo scenario Brexit No Deal/Deal

Toulouse, 21 June 2018 – Airbus has today published a risk assessment outlining the urgent
risks to its business arising from the UK exiting the European Union without a withdrawal
agreement.
It states that the UK exiting the EU next year without a deal – therefore leaving both the
single market and customs union immediately and without any agreed transition – would lead
to severe disruption andinterruption of UK production. Thisscenario would force Airbus to
reconsider its investments in the UK, and its long-term footprint in the country, severely
undermining UK efforts to keep a competitive and innovative aerospace industry, developing
high value jobs and competences.
On the future trade relationship between the UK and EU, the Memorandum makes clear that
while an orderly Brexit with a withdrawal agreement is preferable to a no-deal scenario, the
current planned transition (which ends in December 2020) is too short for the EU and UK
Governments to agree the outstanding issues, and too short for Airbusto implementthe
required changes with its extensive supply chain. In this scenario, Airbus would carefully
monitor any new investments in the UK and refrain from extending the UK suppliers/partners
base.
Tom Williams, Chief Operating Officer of Airbus Commercial Aircraft, commented:
“In any scenario, Brexit has severe negative consequences for the UK aerospace industry
and Airbus in particular. Therefore, immediate mitigation measures would need to be
accelerated. While Airbus understands that the political process must go on, as a responsible
business we require immediate details on the pragmatic steps that should be taken to
operate competitively. Without these, Airbus believes that the impacts on our UK operations
could be significant. We have sought to highlight our concerns over the past 12 months,
without success. Far from Project Fear, this is a dawning reality for Airbus. Put simply, a No
Deal scenario directly threatens Airbus’ future in the UK.”
