BSRIA has commented on yesterday’s announcement after Donald Trump became the 45th President of the USA, calling for stability in the construction industry.
Julia Evans, Chief Executive, BSRIA, said: “The decision is out and America has voted. BSRIA is now calling for confidence in the construction industry after a period of uncertainty. It is essential that industry markets remain stable.
The potential impact on the industry must be safeguarded: in essence it must be business as usual, especially in terms of investment for the industry.
Industry must now question the impact of trade deals, barriers and globalisation.
Much vacillating industry economic indecision had already been evident in the build up to the presidential race which was detrimental to our industry. We do not need more.”
BSRIA and its members are keen to learn more about the President-Elect’s environmental and sustainable trade strategies. Following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, we must now do all we can to make it easier to trade, invest and drive prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic.
The UK is the largest foreign investor in America, and British companies support over 1 million jobs in the US, stretching from Alaska to New York.
