May's speech in Switzerland follows commentary by Pierre Moscovici, European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, in which he said "Brexit" - a portmanteau of "British exit" from the E.U. - would have negative effects on both Britain and the E.U., UPI reports.

"Britain is and will always be open for business. Open to investment in our companies, infrastructures, universities and entrepreneurs.

"Open to those who want to buy our goods and services, and open to talent and opportunities from the arts to technology, finance and manufacturing.

"But at the same time as promoting this openness, we must heed the underlying feeling that there are some companies, particularly those with a global reach who are playing by a different set of rules to ordinary working people."
