There have been regular discussions with the Manufacturing Technology Association (MTA) on a range of issues of importance to the sector, including the implications of EU exit for MTA member companies. As we continue to engage with MTA and industry more widely, we remain committed to making the UK the best place in Europe to own and grow a business. That includes supporting those businesses that trade with the EU and wider international markets, as well as continuing to encourage record foreign direct investment that supports business and communities up and down the country.
