NEW YORK (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May said a post-Brexit Britain would allow businesses to attract the brightest talents and be one of the best places to grow and develop business whatever the outcome of negotiations with the European Union.

“We will put in place a new immigration system that will allow businesses and universities to attract the brightest and best to the UK,” she told business leaders in New York on Wednesday.

She repeated her message that she was confident Britain would be able to strike a good post-Brexit trading agreement with the EU but said her government was ready for a no-deal outcome.
