Today Jacob Young posed a virtual question to the Trade Minster, Greg Hands, proposing that the best way to 'rebuild and reshape our economy' is by promoting trade and helping businesses to export - particularly in left-behind places, such as his Redcar constituency.
Jacob strongly believes that outside of the EU, we can now create new trade deals that better benefit Britain, and that helping our own businesses trade, is the best way to rebuild post-Covid19.
Mr. Hands was in agreement with the Redcar MP's statement, claiming "he is absolutely right." The Trade Minister made it very clear that the UK government is engaging with the US on the matter of exemption from limiting steel tariffs - something the country has been unable to resolve whilst remaining a part of the European Union. Assuredly a matterthat the industrial area of Teesside will keenly await any updates on. Mr. Young was assured that the Department for International Trade is working hard at promoting exports and internal investment.
The Redcar MP has made it clear that the ability to export is highly important in the future prosperity of his area and strongly supports getting a Freeport in Teesside.
