SMMT response to the UK Government’s Approach to Negotiations

27 February 2020 #Europe #SMMT News

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive:

With both mandates now on the table, negotiations for an ambitious, world-leading FTA must now begin in earnest. The UK government’s special focus on automotive is welcome given the sector’s importance to both economic prosperity and jobs across Britain. We look forward to continuing our close work with government and our European partners on the detail to ensure we secure a deal that supports UK-EU automotive trade which means that, when it comes to tariffs, zero really does mean zero.
