Video of the month

Editor's Comment 

By the time you receive this month’s issue of PWE, the UK will be in the last days of its membership of the European Union, and has avoided the undesirable scenario of leaving the EU without a deal (for now at least) - much to the relief of industry. The General Election has also given some clarity as to the direction of travel over the coming months. However whatever your opinion on leaving the EU, manufacturers will hope that the next 10 months will see greater scope within Government to focus on a long term vision for the economy that will result in a comprehensive free trade agreement between the UK and EU that will be in the best interests of everyone.
