Speaking on the sidelines of a news conference, Antoine Leccia told The Associated Press: "It could simply destroy the purchasing power of the consumers and also, maybe, there could be a fall of the pound, and we know that in our sectors, the currency fluctuation can have an impact on sales."
Meanwhile, the federation said revenue from exports continued to rise in 2018, reaching a record of 13.2 billion euros.
