Friday Brief

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

This week the House of Lords European Union Committee has this week published its report into Brexit: trade in goods.  This report follows an Inquiry by the EU External Affairs Sub-Committee, to which the Manufacturing Technologies Association gave evidence in the autumn of 2016.

James Selka, MTA CEO, appeared in person before the Committee and the MTA submitted written evidence too. Much of the Association’s evidence has been taken on board. Please see within the Brief for more information.

The MTA are delighted to introduce the Lloyds Bank International Trade Portal, a new online platform designed to give you all the information you need to explore and expand into overseas markets. Find out more details of the exciting new member service below.

The MTA has partnered with EEF, to deliver a webinar on Tuesday 4th April to help raise awareness of the changes the Government is making to the way it funds apprenticeships. Find out how to join below.

InnoProm 2017 is one of the main annual International Industrial Trade Fairs in Russia, will be held on July 11-14 in Yekaterinburg. For more information on attending please contact the MTA’s Head of Events James Fudge at jfudge@mta.org.uk.  

Baker Dearing Educational Trust and UTCs across the country will be celebrating Think UTC day today. This is a national day where they highlight the amazing work UTCs do to inspire young people to become the scientists, engineers, technologists and innovators of the future. Find out how you can get involved and support your local UTC.

A reminder to MTA members, especially those in the Tooling part of our industry, that the European Cutting Tool Conference, organized by ECTA (European Cutting Tool Association) and hosted by AFM (the Machine Tool, Components and Cutting Tools Association of Spain), will be held in Barcelona from 18-20 May.

And finally we’re looking forward to seeing many of you next Thursday at the MTA Annual Dinner at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London, until then have a great weekend.
