We all want stronger growth, more jobs and rising living standards.
Manufacturing can play its part in delivering this. The sector’s ambitions to invest, innovate and export to new markets are best supported by the UK remaining a member of the European Union.
Manufacturers see clear advantages from being part of the EU – a single market providing ready access to 500 million consumers and a skilled workforce; the enhanced ability to attract foreign investment and funding for innovation; and the potential to open up global markets through trade agreements.
Our relationship with the European Union is vital to the long-term interests of UK manufacturing and the UK’s economic future.

In this flagship report we discuss this as well as how the EU can support growth and how the UK can be better at being in Europe. We also make clear recommendations to manufacturers, government and the European Commission to build a stronger economy.
