[Photo/Agencies]DAVOS — Two days after announcing a “hard Brexit” objective, British Prime Minister Theresa May was trying to assuage global concerns about Brexit in a special address on Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos.”We are going to be a confident country that is in control of its own destiny,” May told assembled leaders in business and politics.”A country in control of its destiny is more, not less, able to play a full role in underpinning and strengthening the multilateral, rules-based system” of global trade, she said.She said that a new, more global Britain would fight for free markets, free trade and globalization.”The United Kingdom — a country that has so often been at the forefront of economic and social change — will step up to a new leadership role as the strongest and most forceful advocate for business, free markets and free trade anywhere in the world,” she asserted.In a decisive speech on Tuesday that sets a course for a clean break with the EU, May promised to quit the European single market and seek a free trade agreement with the EU.She also pledged to restrict access to Britain by EU citizens and end the jurisdiction in Britain of the European Court of Justice. The 12-point blueprint was dubbed a “hard Brexit”.May repeated the message that Britain was not turning its back on Europe.”We are a European country and proud of our European heritage, but we are also a country that has always looked beyond Europe,” she said.Referring to an ambitious free trade deal with the EU at the heart of the plan being set out, she also held up the need to strike new trade deals elsewhere around the world.Uncertainty has hung over Brexit ever since British citizens voted in a referendum last June to leave the EU.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next PageRelated StoriesBanks prep plans to flee amid BrexitBritain still appeals to students, despite BrexitNo half in, half out, May says of BrexitUKs May outlines plan for hard BrexitLondon homeowners stay put as Brexit damps appetite to sellPhotoConflicted US capital prepares to host Trumps inaugurationSilk Road lanterns light up British gardens for Lunar New YearThe rooster gets a stamp or two in CanadaUKs May outlines plan for hard BrexitChinese rider to lead troop in DC paradeRiding through flames during annual Luminarias celebrationMost Viewed in 24 HoursWeekly PhotoThe world in photos: Jan 9 – 15NewsmakerChinese innovation crucial to ending global diseasesElaine Chao: Sure-footed for new jobSpecialPresident Xi visits Latin AmericaPremier Li visits four Eurasian countriesReporters JournalNew M&A fund aims to unite wine lovers and investorsActive market for ivory cant be shuttered soon enoughChina-JapanJapans defense white paper makes irresponsible accusations against ChinaChina-USBasketball game sparks China-US Tourism YearChina-EuropeGroundbreaking early photographs of Shanghai head for LondonChina-AfricaNew Zanzibar hospital funded by ChinaBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
