The extent to which individual sectors will be affected by the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU depends on the future model of cooperation between the EU and the UK. It is, however, clear that there will be no changes for companies during the withdrawal negotiations, as the United Kingdom will remain a full member of the EU and part of the European internal market.

In the last few years, the German economy has proven robust vis-à-vis external factors. It is expected that German companies will be able to cope with the possible impact of the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
