Welcoming the appointment of former LCCI CEO, Lord David Frost, to a government role of Minister of State in the Cabinet Office - with focus on UK-EU relations, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive, Richard Burge, said:
"I fully support the appointment of my predecessor at the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, David Frost, to this role. A single post at the Cabinet table in charge and responsible for our developing relationship with the EU is essential.
"The current agreement is a very basic platform. We need to work hard, fast and comprehensively to create a new and sustainable series of agreements with our largest trading and services partner. It is not going to be easy. It never was."
