The result followed the announcement by Confederation of British Industry president Sir Clive Thompson that the willingness of the government 'to lead (businesses into Europe) will be a vital determinant of the final outcome' at the start of it's annual conference this week. 'I would have thought that more trade is done outside Europe than in Europe. The future of Britain's business has to be in the rest of the world. We need to compete with/against Europe and obtain business from countries around the world. This used to be the case in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Since then Europe has overtaken Britain,' said Paresh Samat, financial director at SBJ Employment and Safety Services.The result shows the government has made little progress in persuading the business sector of the benefits to be had inside the Euro zone.However some FDs believe Euro entry is essential for their continued business success in the future.'We are too far in Europe to withdraw now. Despite what anyone thinks it is not possible for us to use the 'Opt Out Clause' people need to stop pretending we can avoid Europe as we are part of it! We need to concentrate on working with Europe and focus on the rules and regulations which will affect us,' said one FD who wished to remain anonymous.
