Brexit response working group to hold first meeting Thursday

A new working group established to plot Czech government policy in the wake of the United Kingdom’s Brexit vote will meet for the first time on Thursday, the Czech News Agency reported. The group will be headed by the state secretary for European affairs, Tomáš Prouza, and should produce a strategy for negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU and policy positions on the future working of the bloc by the end of September. Announcing the establishment of the group just after June’s Brexit vote, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said one of its aims would be to ensure continued equality for Czech workers in the UK.
