MTA responds to Government Export Strategy

Speaking after the launch of the Government’s Export Strategy, James Selka the Chief Executive of the Manufacturing Technologies Association, said: “This Strategy to raise the UK’s export performance, is welcome. We are pleased that it reflects the important the role that Trade Associations can play in helping to foster a supportive environment for companies to export. We welcome the increased focus on integrating UK Export Finance into the support network too – this is an area in which we have lagged behind our competitors. However we regret that there is little mention of Trade Shows and the important role that they can play in introducing UK companies to overseas markets. Once again, we fear that the UK is overlooking a tool which all of our peers regard as essential.”
