Brexit : How does it Affect India and the World

Brexit is essentially an amalgamation of two words British Exit. The British Exit from the European Union is the dramatic reason behind the abbreviation “BREXIT.”  


The European Union is a giant foundation that includes 28 countries out of 51 European countries. The European Union is the regulating body founded in the year 1957 for economic, political, and trade unions. It evolved over several decades, and the recent changes were made in the year 1992. It has two prime governing bodies: the European Council and the European Parliament, which are the regulatory bodies of the elected members of the European Union. In the year 2021, the EU is facilitated by the honor called the Nobel Peace Prize for providing protections to human rights, democracy, reconciliation, and the maintenance of peace and harmony all across Europe.  

Recently, Greece left Citigroup’s Economists named the European Union and the exit as Grexit, and in replication of that, the British kept their exit from European Union as Brexit. The reasons behind leaving the European Union were that.

  • The Investors do not evaluate the British as an individual wealthy and powerful country but as part of the EU, similar to other 27 countries, leading them to massive losses and under evaluation. 
  • They need to pay a lot of pounds every week as the depository of the EU, which results in the non-fulfillment of the country’s intimate tenders and development contracts. It does impact the exports and imports of the British because of the baggage of the bureaucratic pressures of the European Council and European Parliament.

The impacts of the British Exit from the European Union called Brexit.

  • The United Kingdom is the most renowned superpower and the prime trade ally of the European Union, so the UK is fine anyways whether someone is exiting or a place to enter the European Union, but the impact will be upon dominant export countries, and this will also influence the price of the pound.
  • The United Kingdom is the greatest and most renowned power of the European Union, and the United States of America USA is the other loyalty holder similar to Greece and Britain, so after their exits, the USA is bearing losses along with the fear of losing the power and influence.
