BERLIN (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May has invited the leaders of several European business associations to talks next Monday about the effects of Brexit, several European sources told Reuters on Thursday.

“That came directly from the office of the Prime Minister,” one source said of the invitation. Further details were not immediately available.

European and German industry groups have repeatedly criticized what they see as a lack of clarity from London in Brexit talks.
