Commenting on the extraordinary events at The Capitol on 6 January, Duncan Edwards, CEO of BAB said: “BAB condemns utterly the violence in Washington yesterday and the senseless loss of life that resulted.  The huge success of the US economy, its position as a magnet for investment, innovation and talent is due to the reliability of its democratic processes and its rule of law.  The transatlantic business community will today be hoping and expecting that yesterday’s events have no lasting impact on the peaceful transfer of power that is the hallmark of American democracy.”
