Paul Kahn, predsjednik tvrtke Airbus UK, zaposlenik 16,000-a, izjavio je da se Britanija mora natjecati za međunarodna ulaganja.

“The best way to guarantee this is by remaining part of the EU,” he said.

Earlier, Chancellor George Osborne said in a speech to the CBI employers’ group that he wants the UK “to be in Europe, but not run by Europe”.

Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum on the UK’s EU membership by the end of 2017, and the matter has been rising up the political and business agenda.

U ponedjeljak (18 svibnja), predsjednik tvrtke građevinske opreme JCB rekao je kako se Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo ne bi trebalo bojati izlaska iz EU.

A u srijedu, predsjednik CBI-ja, Sir Mike Rake, said businesses should “speak out early” in favour of remaining in a reformed EU.

Oglas

Kahn, speaking to the BBC’s industry correspondent John Moylan, said that with a UK referendum on leaving the EU perhaps less than 18 months away, companies like Airbus needed to be at the forefront of the debate.

“I believe that it is vital for a company such as Airbus to come out and make a stand in favour of Britain remaining in the European Union,” he said.

‘Reconsider investment’

Airbus, the world’s second-largest planemaker after Boeing, employs 6,000 people at its site at Broughton, north Wales, where it assembles the wings for all Airbus aircraft.

Nekoliko tisuća ljudi zaposleno je u Filtonu, u blizini Bristola, projektirajući krila i testirajući podvozje.

Naglasio je da, ako Britanija napusti EU, tvrtka se neće iznenada zatvoriti.

But he added: “If after an exit from the European Union, economic conditions in Britain were less favourable for business than in other parts of Europe, or beyond, would Airbus reconsider future investment in the United Kingdom? Yes, absolutely.”

Airbus is one of Europe’s biggest industrial enterprises spanning civil aviation, defence and space, with operations in Germany, France and Spain.

Ako Britanija napusti EU, gospodin Kahn je sugerirao da bi se tvrtka mogla suočiti s više birokracije u područjima kao što su radne vize i trgovinske prepreke.

He said he was not “blindly supporting Britain’s membership of the EU”, adding: “I welcome the UK government’s intentions to deliver positive and hoped-for reforms – which would create a leaner and more efficient EU.”

‘Priced out’

Njegovi komentari došli su onog dana kada je Osborne rekao poslovnim čelnicima CBI-ja da će se vlada boriti za reformiranu Europu.

He acknowledged in his speech that some businesses might “want us to leave the EU come-what-may. And there are also those, including some in this room, who want us to go further into a more federal Europe”.

But the chancellor said: “Our position – which I think is shared by the majority of British people and a majority of British businesses – is that we want Britain to be in Europe, but not run by Europe.

“The problem of making the single currency work is inevitably drawing its members toward ever-closer integration. We don’t want to be part of that integration.

“The challenge for us is to ensure that while this happens we protect the single market, and make sure the EU continues to work in the interests of all 28 member states, including Britain.”

Europe, he said, had “priced itself out of the global economy” with a raft of rules, regulations and red tape.
