Swiss Radio RSR Interviews Jean Russotto on BrexitJune 9, 2016
Steptoe Brussels partner Jean Russotto was interviewed by the Swiss radio RSR for its program "Forum." The interview, which aired on June 7, discusses the impact of a potential Brexit on the current Swiss-EU deadlock. Mr. Russotto explains it is unwarranted to hope that the UK leaving the EU would eventually help Switzerland in resolving the current deadlock, which resulted from the 2014 Swiss anti-immigration vote. In addition, it is wishful thinking to believe that the UK and Switzerland could create a powerful political and economic coalition to replace and facilitate a new free trade agreement with the EU.
The full ten-minute interview is available at the French-language radio RSR.
