SMMT broadcasts automotive summit across Internet
Senior figures from across the automotive industry are meeting for the annual SMMT International Automotive Summit in Westminster today, which is being broadcast live across the Internet. The industry has had a major boost in recent weeks with huge investments announced by BMW and Nissan, but is the wider industry able to secure similar funding? For our part, Tyres & Accessories has lodged a question about the effect of the Longbridge revival and the UK’s relationship with China on the tyre trade, which we will report on as and when this is answered.
According to the SMMT, The UK is home to some of the world’s biggest automotive brands and a key theme of the conference is what the UK can offer to the global motor industry and will ask vehicle manufacturers to address how the industry adapts to an ultra-low carbon future.
The even is likely to attract investor in the business, manufacturers and suppliers. Paul Everitt, chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Richard Parry Jones, co-chairman of the Automotive Council and Chas Hallett, Editor-in-chief of What Car? will be online from 13:45 on Tuesday 28th June broadcasting live from the summit on the 29th floor of Millbank Tower.
