TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan wants Britain’s exit from the European Union to be predictable and transparent so that Japanese businesses can continue their activity smoothly in the country, a senior Japanese government official said on Monday. Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura said the government would do its utmost to gather information on the Brexit negotiations, which he said remain fluid, as well as support Japanese corporate activity there. He made the remarks at a government task force meeting on Britain’s exit from the EU as British Prime Minister Theresa May will visit Japan to discuss Brexit, trade and defence with Premier Shinzo Abe later this week.
