EEF in partnership with BDO have recently released the fourth annual Regional Manufacturing Outlook report, in which we outline how trends in manufacturing over the past year have evolved around the UK.
The economic uncertainty shows no sign of abating and the potential for a no-deal Brexit seems ever more likely. But the low value of sterling has been a boon for manufacturers who have had a strong year based on export driven growth. However, global trade tensions are escalating and business are becoming more vocal about the risks of any additional trade friction post March 2019.
As part of the international focus of this year’s Central South Mid-Market campaign we would like to invite you to attend a roundtable dinner with Lee Hopley, Chief Economist at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation. Our discussions will focus around managing risk and how best to take advantage of the current exchange rates.
Join us at a round table dinner with our Chief Economist, Lee Hopley, as she discusses the key findings from the report and comment on the wider economic climate of key issues facing the industry.
BDO’s Arbinder Chatwal, and HSBC, will discuss the potential business impacts of both Brexit and the transition period - concentrating on managing risk and how best to take advantage of the current exchange rates.
Delegates will hear the latest insight into the economic climate across the UK regions and how different sub sectors are enduring the current climate. Receive insight on the impact of Brexit to business, with a focus on what tax, VAT and Customs Duty future arrangements might be.
