Ahead of the referendum IMTA held a series of meetings of its EU referendum working group. IMTA did not take a view on what the favoured outcome would be. The group produced an information paper to provide members with facts about potential implications for the sector: EU Referendum Paper.


The association now has a key role to play in ensuring that our members (both importers and exporters) get the best outcomes possible out of the deal to be negotiated between the UK and the EU and similarly the UK with other partners across the globe. 


IMTA issued a press release on Friday 24th of June:



IMTA sent a communication to all members with its plan of action following the UK’s decision to leave the EU.


IMTA held a members meeting on 13th of July where the IMTA strategy was agreed and ways in which the association will support members in navigating through this unprecedented time were discussed.
