Britain's minister in charge of exiting the European Union will host a conference for business leaders on Friday as part of a government drive to give them a bigger say in the process.
Prime Minister Theresa May's government, which has come under fire for not consulting widely enough over its Brexit plans, said David Davis would host the conference in London.
"With negotiations underway, the Secretary of State for Exiting the European union is determined to bolster the government's engagement with the business community on Brexit," a government source said on Sunday.
"That is why he recently announced an intention to coordinate activity with the prime minister, chancellor and business secretary to ensure we tap into the wealth of specialist knowledge from businesses up and down the country."
