    Prime Minister Theresa May said she felt optimistic about Great Britain's economic future after leaving the European Union.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United Kingdom's Prime Minister Theresa May said Wednesday she was optimistic about her country's trade and economic prospects after the June 23 referendum to leave the European Union.

    "I am optimistic about the prospects about this country once we leave the European Union, I'm optimistic about the trade deals that other countries now actively are coming to us to say that they want to do with the United Kingdom, and I'm optimistic about how we will be able to make sure that our economy grows outside the European Union," May told lawmakers.

    On June 23, the nationwide referendum on EU membership was held in the United Kingdom, in which 51.9 percent of voters said the country should leave the bloc. UK Prime Minister Theresa May promised to start the procedure of leaving the European Union by the end of March 2017.
