Apple’s recent talk with the Prime Minister of UK, revealed that Apple is “very optimistic” about UK’s future after the Brexit.
While the US Chamber of Commerce said US firms have been delaying UK investment decisions, Apple believes the UK will be “just fine” post-Brexit, and plans on building a new headquarter in London, reported BBC.
The new headquarter will be in the redeveloped Battersea Power Station, which is expected to be fully operating in 2021, with over 1,600 employees. Currently, Apple has created almost 300,000 jobs across the UK.
“We are proud that Apple’s innovation and growth now supports nearly 300,000 jobs across the UK.”
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook met with Prime Minister Theresa May at Downing Street this week, and said “We’re a big believer in the UK – we think you’ll be just fine.” He went on to say, “Yes there will be bumps in the road along the way but the UK’s going to be fine.”
Even though Apple remains hopeful, the US chamber of Commerce is concerned about the transition rules and whether there are going to be “new regulatory challenges impediments”.
Cook’s meeting Thursday ended his week-long European tour where he completed business in countries such as France, Germany, Scotland and Britain.
