Manufacturing Change EU from within, says industry leader

Guardian (UK) |

Britain is naive to think it can close itself off from Europe without the risk of losing out on billions of pounds of trading opportunities, the head of the UK manufacturing trade body EEF has warned. Terry Scuoler said the best way to maximise chances for UK exporters was to help shape policy from within the EU. "Britain must not gamble on its future in Europe. The stakes are enormous and it is naive to think we can simply pull up the drawbridge and carry on as normal. The debate must move on to how we can make Europe work to support jobs, growth and higher living standards." Scuoler will lead lobbying efforts for the European-wide manufacturing sector, boosting Britain's influence in Brussels. As chairman of CEEMET, comprising 23 national manufacturing bodies, he will represent more than 200,000 companies and 35 million employees across Europe in discussions with the European Commission and parliament.
