Isle of Man Live it, love it

Isle of Man well placed as Brexit process begins

At the same time as UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, was triggering Article 50, the Isle of Man's Chief Minister, Howard Quayle issued his own announcement on Brexit.

The Isle of Man is as well positioned as possible at the start of the formal procedure for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

The Chief Minister said:

'The United Kingdom is setting out on an historic journey which will change the future of Britain and Europe. The outcome remains uncertain, but the Isle of Man is as well prepared and well placed as we could be at at the start of the formal Brexit process.

'Thanks to sustained hard work to build relationships and raise awareness of our position, the Isle of Man is now clearly on the radar of the UK's considerations around Brexit. This has been confirmed in the recent letter from the Prime Minister herself, and the importance of our interests being recognised has been highlighted by influential committees in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.'
