Yorkshire Post - Business - - FRONT PAGE -

CHRISTO­PHER BAI­LEY, the Hal­i­fax-born chief creative of­fi­cer of Burberry, has said the po­ten­tial for UK trad­ing post-Brexit is “enor­mous”.

He warned that tougher immigration rules must not pre­vent the abil­ity to work with peo­ple from around the world and ac­knowl­edged that there was un­cer­tainty about the out­come of Brexit, which had con­trib­uted to de­lays in Burberry’s plans for York­shire.

But he wel­comed the pos­si­bil­i­ties for the Bri­tish econ­omy from global trade af­ter the UK leaves the Euro­pean Union.

He also voiced con­cerns about the im­pact of the an­ti­im­mi­gra­tion cli­mate and called for an “open world” and a world “with­out bor­ders”.
