Reuters first with key developments on Brexit, EU 27
On Monday, Reuters was first to report that Britain plans to launch the Brexit process on March 29. Prime Minister Theresa May will write to the European Union formally announcing its withdrawal from the bloc in a letter that will start the clock ticking on a two-year countdown to Brexit and allow negotiations to begin between London and Brussels. Following the Reuters report, which London confirmed minutes later, the sterling fell from a three-week high against the dollar.
In addition, Reuters exclusively reported on Friday details of the European Union’s 60th anniversary declaration and followed up with an in-depth analysis. “Europe is our common future,” the EU’s 27 leaders plan to declare in Rome this weekend, in defiance of its worst blowback ever - Brexit.
