Responding to the Office for National Statistics data release indicating a decline in manufacturing in the UK following the Brexit referendum, the Forum of Private Business is encouraging manufacturers to look to opportunities for growth as opposed to reducing their production in the face of uncertainty.

Ian Cass, CEO of the Forum of Private Business commented, 'It is clear that following the Brexit decision there has been a degree of economic uncertainty. The overall indications are that a recession has been avoided though, and that small businesses as a whole remain positive. The one area where there is disappointment is with manufactures, but as a result of the pound's relative weakness there is the opportunity to find new markets through exporting, and drive growth rather than contract.'

'We are keen at the Forum to help businesses expand into international markets and have free guides on International Trade and Exporting by way of support'
