Yves Bertoncini, our director, is interviewed by BFM TV, in the program Week-end Direct, to explain the process of Brexit engaged "by end of March", Octobre 2, 2016.
Urged to present a schedule for the exit of the European Union, Theresa May mentionned on Sunday that her country will engage the process "by end of March 2017". "PM had set a "fairly reasonable" timetable and thought Article 50 could be triggered sooner than March", Leading Brexit campaigner Iain Duncan Smith said to the BBC. Once this article activated, London and Brussels will have two years to sign their divorce papers. The PM promisses a "smooth transition" during which the Parliament will be invited to decide which EU legislation will be incorporate into UK law.
