BP's Dudley Says Brexit Would Plunge World Into Uncertainty
MOSCOW, June 17 (Reuters) - A decision by the British people to quit the European Union in a forthcoming referendum would trigger a period of uncertainty for the world, BP Chief Executive Bob Dudley told Bloomberg TV on Friday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, Dudley said: "It's not going to change exactly what BP does. We will respond”.
"(But) my personal concern is the unintended consequences - no one is quite sure what will happen. I'm sure the pound will gyrate a bit. I think it will put the world into some period of uncertainty ... including for Britain. So, I'm concerned about that," he said.
