LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will continue to attract companies to invest in the UK following its vote to leave the European Union, finance minister Philip Hammond said on Thursday.
"As an outward-looking country, we will continue to attract companies to invest and grow in the UK, while supporting British businesses," Hammond said in statement released to mark a visit to Jaguar Land Rover, the British luxury carmaker unit of India's Tata Motors
Prime Minister Theresa May will tell world leaders at a G20 summit of leaders in China later this week that Britain is "open for business", and will seek to forge relationship with new markets and make the most of the opportunity of leaving the bloc, her office said.
