1 min read

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be a keynote political speaker at EEF’s National Manufacturing Conference in London on 20 February 2018.

The Opposition leader will set out his vision for industry and the economy and will address delegates and take questions about his plans for a future Labour government.

Corbyn will outline Labour’s proposals to EEF delegates on Brexit and Britain’s global positioning, as well as map out the party’s economic plans.

During his presentation at this year’s conference “Global Britain: Change, Opportunity, Growth”, he will also take questions on what Labour believes is the best way to forge a safe path through challenging political times and party’s vision for the future of British manufacturing and engineering.

The annual event brings together Britain’s leading government politicians, senior industrialists and manufacturing leaders. Other high-profile speakers that have been lined up include Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator at The Financial Times and Business Secretary Greg Clark.

Explains EEF chief Terry Scuoler: “With Brexit on the horizon, our conference comes at a critical time for industry, which has a key role to play in ensuring that post-Brexit Britain is a great success.

“This conference provides an important collaborative platform for industry and government to work together and to hear what Opposition politicians are thinking. Government departments across the Brexit agenda must continue to work hand in hand with industry in order to tease out the best way forward as we form the post Brexit landscape.”
