Newsletter Listing intro for week 31

Good afternoon and welcome to the Friday Brief for the 3rd of August.

We’ve a mixture of opportunities and analysis for you this week.

There are opportunities to attend a meet the buyer event in Coventry next month and to take advantage of an MTA member’s rate to access some of the best training in the business at Cambridge University’s Institute for Manufacturing.

We’ve not a lot of Gold, Silver and Bronze in the week’s Brief but we do have a great opportunity to do your bit for Britain in the exporting stakes. Vietnam is a fast growing market and there’s an opportunity to learn more and meet some of the movers and shakers there, find out more below. Also if you’re going to IMTEX in Bangalore there may be TAP funding available to help you, details below.

Still on an export related theme this week saw the launch of EMO 2013. The world’s biggest machine tool show will be held once again in Hannover. There are further details in the Brief and we have English Language hard copies of the brochure and the Stand Application documentation available for members. If you’d like us to post one to you let James Fudge know at jfudge@mta.org.uk.

Analysis comes courtesy of Orgalime’s latest technical journal and a closer look at the week’s manufacturing data from Geoff Noon, the headline grabbing PMI index was down but manufacturing input prices were down and employment was up. As the Athletics gets under way at the Olympic Park, it seems that the recovery is turning into more of a marathon than a sprint.

Enjoy the sport, and have a good weekend.
