May to Meet US Business Leaders including IBM and Goldman Sachs Bosses to Thwart Post-Brexit Plans to Move Euro Headquarters from UK

THE TELEGRAPH: Theresa May will today meet some of America's most powerful business leaders amid concerns that they could be preparing to move their European headquarters out of the UK in the wake of the Brexit vote.

The Prime Minister, who is attending the United Nations General Assembly in New York, will on Monday evening go to a reception with executives from companies including IBM, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Amazon.

She will tell them that she wants to hear what their concerns are over the Brexit vote. American executives want assurances that the rights of their employees based in Britain will be protected once the UK leaves the EU. » | Peter Dominiczak, political editor, New York | Monday, September 19, 2016
