The Government recognises the critical role competitive extended manufacturing supply chains play in the UK economy – boosting inward investment, exports, job creation, productivity and value for local economies.

We have are been assessing all aspects of supply chain impacts including ‘just-in-time’ systems. The government’s UK-EU Future Relationship White Paper proposes the establishment of a free trade area for goods, which would protect the uniquely integrated supply chains and ‘just-in-time’ processes that have developed across the UK and the EU. We are also continuing to review evidence to identify opportunities to make UK manufacturing supply chains stronger, more visible and efficient, and improve the offer to potential investors.
