Getaway to EU: Incorporation of a Dutch company
Boris Johnson’s massive win in the UK general election means that the Brexit process can now be accelerated, which is something ‘everyone has been waiting for,’ Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte said on Thursday evening.
Johnson’s victory means Britain will now leave the EU on January 31, and then start work on trade talks with the EU. European leaders will discuss how to proceed with that trade treaty later on Friday. On Thursday, Dutch foreign minister Stef Blok told journalists that the Dutch will be most affected by Europe. ‘Johnson’s desire to complete a trade negotiation with the EU is highly ambitious,’ he said. Asked about his role in the negotiations, Blok said: ‘I will always promote the interests of the Dutch consumer and of Dutch companies.
Experts say the impact of Brexit on the Netherlands will be larger than in many other countries because of the close trading links between the two. The International Monetary Fund said last July that should Britain pull out of the EU without any fixed trade deal in place, Dutch national income would fall by 0.7%. While Johnson has agreed a deal with the EU, it still has to be voted on in the British parliament.
