The debate about the type of Brexit deal the UK should negotiate with the EU is of vital interest to many UK manufacturers.
The UK is currently the 9th largest industrial nation in the world and its strength is underpinned by its trading relationship with the EU:
- 52% of total manufactured exports by value went to the EU in the 12 months to April 2016
- Manufacturing accounts for a whopping 45% of all UK exports.
This event provides some commentary on the emerging Brexit deal and showcases support available to manufacturers to help them navigate through their export journey to the EU and beyond.
