LONDON (Reuters) - British finance minister George Osborne said on Saturday that top finance officials from the Group of 20 nations were unanimous that a possible British exit from the European Union would be a shock to the global economy.
“Here at the G20, finance leaders and central bank governors of the world’s biggest economies have raised serious concerns about the risks posed by a UK exit from the EU,” Osborne said in a statement from Shanghai.
“They have concluded unanimously today that what they call the shock of a potential UK vote to leave is among the biggest economic dangers this year.”
