Newsletter Listing intro for week 33

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

We would like to remind you that next month our new Members’ Forum to be held on Wednesday 23rd September at the AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre outside Sheffield. The MTA’s Head of Facilities and Secretariat Randa Orgill has now written to all Council Member to formally invite them to this event and we very much looking forward to seeing you all there.

The MTA is proud to sponsor Girl Kart Grand Prix, this initiative aims to encourage more women into engineering through practical engagement and team work.

As part of their programme of webinar’s UKTI will be hosting two seminars over the next few weeks covering LinkedIn to Export with UKTI and how to access funds for European R&D. Find out more details below.

Also in UKTI news the Great Festival Pakistan which is due to take place from 2-11 October, 2015 in Karachi. The Festival consists of dedicated days to business/trade, as well as focusing on various sectors of manufacturing.

At an industry level, the divergence in performance between the booming Automotive and Aerospace sectors and weakness elsewhere is highlighted by the Bank of England’s Agents’ summary, as it the relative export performance of the UK overall where competitiveness in Europe has been hit by the weakness of the Euro, but is holding up in dollar denominated markets.  The latter trend is confirmed by the most recent trade figures where an increase in UK exports was almost entirely due to the non-EU markets.

And finally we’d like to give you a gentle reminder to complete the MTA Business survey which can be found here - http://www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-july-2015.

Thanks for reading, we’ll be back next Friday with more news, until then have a great weekend.
