NEW YORK (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will on Tuesday promise to “roll out the red carpet” for American businesses with the most competitive tax rates in the hemisphere after Britain leaves the European Union.
Addressing U.S. and Canadian business leaders at a breakfast reception on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, Johnson will say he plans to make Britain “the best place in the world to start, run and build a business”.
Advantage - Freedoms - Brexit - Whether - Tax
“We are going to take advantage of all the freedoms that Brexit can give. Whether that is new tax allowances for investment…or devising better regulation for the sectors in which the UK leads the world,” he will say, according to advance extracts of the speech provided by his office.
“We want a market that is open to the world. With the most competitive tax rates and the best skilled workforce in the hemisphere. And so I say to our American friends we will roll out the red carpet.”
Johnson - Britain - EU - End - October
Johnson, who has pledged to take Britain out of the EU by the end of October, is due to discuss the prospect of a post-Brexit trade deal with the United States during a meeting with President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
