After what seemed a long six week campaign, the UK election saw the widely predicted Labour landslide finally come to pass.

It is to be hoped that this conclusive outcome, though widely expected, will bring some element of economic certainty to the UK economy and allow SMEs the confidence to make and go ahead with plans to invest in and grow their businesses.

There has been some evidence of businesses taking a “wait and see” approach on occasions in recent weeks and it is to be hoped that with the election now behind us, further growth across key economic sectors will soon become evident.

The Institute of Export and International Trade outlined key trade takeaways from the Labour manifesto.

  1. Rebuilding EU Relationship: While pledging to keep the UK out of the EU, its customs union, and single market, Labour aims to “make Brexit work” by improving the UK’s trade and investment relationship with the EU. This includes negotiating a veterinary agreement to prevent unnecessary border checks and facilitate smoother movement for UK musicians within the EU.
  2. Defence Sector Opportunities: Labour emphasises trade opportunities in the defence sector. To maximise these, they plan to ensure resilient supply chains, promote innovation, and support industry to benefit from export opportunities, all while upholding international law.
  3. Industrial Strategy: The manifesto commits to establishing an Industrial Strategy Council, aligning trade policy with industrial priorities. This sectoral approach will identify where the UK has advantages over other countries.
