“退欧公投”指英国民众进行公投,确定是否退出欧盟。退欧公投即将于6月23日举行,而在此之前,仅仅是各类相关的民意调研就对外汇市场造成了不小的震动。那么,你知道”退欧公投”的英文怎么表达吗?告诉你答案吧,退欧公投的英文是:Brexit Referendum。

这里的Brexit,就是所谓的“退欧”,Investopedia是这样进行解释Brexit的:The Brexit, an abbreviation of “British exit” that mirrors the term Grexit, refers to the possibility of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.(Brexit是”British exit”的简写,由此前的希腊退欧演变而来,指英国有可能从欧盟退出。)



而referendum,则是“公投”之意,参看Oxford Dictionaries的英文解释:a general vote by the electorate on a single political question that has been referred to them for a direct decision.(一场由全体选民参与的投票,目的是针对某个特定的政治性问题作出抉择。)

参考这个例句:GBP/USD sentiment favors the Pound, but the pair is seen steady around 1.4400/4500, with investors unwilling to risk much ahead of the Brexit referendum.(英镑/美元货币对的市场情绪看好英镑,但近日汇价逗留在1.4400/4500区间,皆因投资者不愿在英国退欧公投前冒太大风险。)
