British trade minister says Brexit is not the only reason for GDP slowdown

BERN, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Britain’s economic slowdown should not be blamed entirely on Brexit, British Trade Minister Liam Fox said on Monday after data showed the economy last year grew at its slowest since 2012.

“Clearly there are those who believe that Brexit is the only economic factor applying to the UK economy. I think you’ll find that the predicted slowdown in a number of European economies is not disconnected from the slowdown, for example, in China,” Fox told a news conference in the Swiss capital.
