The National Association of Manufacturers and Make UK have signed a memorandum of understanding designed to strengthen economic ties between the U.S. and the U.K. According to NAM, this MOU will serve as a roadmap that will outline both organizations’ goals and objectives. The partnership is intended to allow members of both organizations to improve their manufacturing operations in a number of ways, including through co-sponsored meetings, conferences, seminars, reports, letters and advocacy on trade and investment-related issues.
In a recent quote, NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, said, “The NAM and Make UK have such a strong, special relationship, just as the U.S. and the UK do, and we must continue to deepen that partnership and the commercial and economic ties between our countries. Cooperation between American and British companies not only makes our economies stronger, but also strengthens the transatlantic strategic alliances to support the rule of law, freedom and opportunity from those who threaten our shared values. Especially with Russia’s continued assault on Ukraine, it is critical that we unleash the power of commerce to preserve, protect and expand democracy.”
