A final reminder that the MTA Forecast Seminar will be held next Thursday (17th October);  the timing is, as the Chinese say, interesting, as it falls on the first day of the EU Summit and two days before the definitive (or is it?) meeting of Parliament, so while we may not be able to give a definite view of the future trends, the event will, of course, include discussion of the various scenarios around Brexit and the implications for our sector.  The three presentations will cover the global economic outlook and an overview of the prospects for key industry sectors, both at home and overseas;  these will be delivered by Adrian Cooper CEO and Chief Economist at Oxford Economics and his colleague Jeremy Leonard, Director of Industry Services.  The third element is the outlook for the market for machine tools and cutting tools from Geoff Noon, MTA Statistician.

You can register for the event, which this year is being held at Yamazaki Mazak in Worcester, via the MTA web-site at - we look forward to seeing you there.
