EURIS welcomes the Prime Minister’s vision for UK trade but highlights need for post-Brexit industry and Government liaison body to deliver on this vision
The EURIS Task Force today welcomes the Prime Minister’s vision for UK trade agreements with the EU and across the globe but highlights the need for the creation of a post-Brexit industry and Government liaison body in order to deliver on this vision.
Dr Howard Porter, EURIS Chair said, “EURIS is delighted the Prime Minister is prioritising trade negotiations. Trade is a key driver of growth and prosperity and is crucial to both the future of the product supply sector, and the competitiveness of those sectors to which we supply, as our supply chain involves both imports and exports. We welcome the Prime Minister’s vision for UK trade with the EU and rest of the world, but believe this is only deliverable through industry and Government working very closely together”.
Steve Brambley, EURIS Vice-Chair added, “EURIS believes the best way forward to deliver on the vision set out in today’s speech is the creation of a post-Brexit Industry and Government liaison body with the specific remit of confirming and recommending for adoption, or mutual recognition, aspects of future European legislation that specifically impact on the industrial product supply sector. This would facilitate access to European markets and the vast array of global markets that also look for compliance with European legislation and standards as the basis for trade. We believe this is essential for the industrial product supply sector to fulfil its full trade potential going forward”.
