French PM outlines EUR50m investment plan for French airports in preparation for 'no deal' Brexit

France's Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced (17-Jan-2019) plans to launch a EUR50 million investment plan for French ports and airports "in the coming days" in preparation for a 'no deal' Brexit scenario. "We strongly believe" the UK will leave without an exit deal, Mr Philippe stated, highlighting the French Government's responsibility to ensure the "least possible impact" if the UK exits the EU without an agreement being formed by 29-Mar-2019. He noted ports and airports are "the locations the most threatened by modifications brought about by a 'hard Brexit'". [more - original PR]
