As the United Kingdom gets ready to leave the European Union, there are infinite questions about how will business be impacted post the exit. Hannover Messe provides industry players with the opportunity to interact with high profile leaders in order to get first hand information about diverse business aspects of the deal.

Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron will be remembered by the world as the person who legally announced Britain’s Exit from the European Union (Brexit) after the UK voted to leave the EU. The December 2017 briefing paper on ‘Statistics on UK-EU Trade’ by the House of Commons Library states that the EU is the UK’s largest trading partner and in 2016, UK exports to the EU were £236 billion (43 % of all UK exports) while UK imports from the EU were £318 billion (54 % of all UK imports).

Great Britain is one of the largest trading partners for the European mechanical engineering industry. Europe is considered to be the world’s largest producer and exporter of machinery, ahead of the US, China and Japan with major export markets currently in Russia, India, Turkey, Brazil and South Korea, according to reports.
