Impact of trade key at parliamentary briefing
This month, ALFED will host members from across the aluminium supply chain at the House of Commons in London for its annual parliamentary breakfast briefing. Aiming to provide industry stakeholders with valuable insight into the evolving aluminium landscape, the event will focus on importing and exporting.
Held in the iconic and historic House of Commons Palace of Westminster, the Breakfast Briefing will be jointly hosted by ALFED’s president, Mike Dines, director, Tandom Metallurgical Group, and Philip Dunne, MP.
Alongside providing a platform for ALFED members, policymakers, and business leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the changing dynamics in the UK aluminium market, participants will also have the opportunity to identify areas for growth, strategic collaborations, and supply chain optimisation to enhance their competitive position.
Tom Jones, chief executive officer of the Aluminium Federation, commented: “ALFED’s parliamentary breakfast briefing is a significant and anticipated event in the annual industry calendar. Our sector plays a vital role in the UK economy and our members relish the opportunity to raise key issues with the highest levels of UK government. This year the key focus of discussion will undoubtedly be on the ever-evolving landscape and some of the challenges facing import and export.
Mike Dines, president of ALFED, added: “Alongside sharing unique insight into the aluminium supply chain across the UK and Europe, the breakfast provides our members with key access to government. Pressing questions can be asked and important issues discussed freely. Our members are keen to see progress with international trade agreements for the aluminium sector, so this is a great opportunity to understand all of the issues and have open discussions about resolving them.
