EEF/BDO Manufacturing Outlook 2018 Q1

PUBLISHED 01 Mar 2018


Britain’s manufacturers have begun 2018 in the same upbeat manner they left last year on the back of the continued improvement in global demand together with a pick-up in the UK market, according to a major survey published by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation and accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP.

 

As talks on Brexit loom, the clear and substantial importance of European markets to UK manufacturers, backs EEF’s view that it is essential the Government seeks an agreement with the EU which maintains trading arrangements as close as possible to those which currently exist.
