BERLIN (Reuters) - German industry association BDI called on Britain to quickly pass an agreement on the country's exit from the European Union to avert a hard Brexit.
"Now it is important that the British government doesn't lose any more time. We are calling on those in charge in London to achieve a majority as quickly as possible to avert a hard Brexit," the association said in a statement on Thursday.
"Otherwise companies will have to implement the necessary emergency measures for a disorderly exit of the United Kingdom from the EU," it added.
