BERLIN (Reuters) – The European Union and Britain will not be able to reach a comprehensive deal on their future economic relations by the March 29, 2019, exit deadline, Germany’s largest industry group BDI warned on Friday, adding that a hard Brexit was very likely.

The two sides will need many years to complete a comprehensive deal on trade and investments, BDI Managing Director Joachim Lang told Reuters.
