A group of UK manufacturing companies have called upon the British political establishment to commit to ensuring Britain remains a member of the EU. A failure to do so could hinder UK investment and wealth creation, pro EU advocates claim.
The EEF, the members of which account for 25 percent of UK manufacturers, issued the plea in a manifesto published on Monday. The document identified a number of policy areas that require persistent focus if Britain’s economy and manufacturing sector are to reach their full potential.
In its manifesto, the EEF argued Britain’s national interest would be “best served” if it were to remain an integral part of a reformed European Union, which was focused on trade, further expansion of the free market and a dedicated effort to improve economic growth and employment opportunities for each of the member states.
