Policy & Intelligence

Semta works on behalf of the advanced manufacturing and engineering sector to influence policy at the highest level. Semta engages with government, politicians and other key stakeholders to shape policy to meet the interests of the employers it represents.

Semta also keeps employers informed of policy developments and provides them with opportunities to have their say on policy decisions which affect them.

Because Semta is employer-led and not-for-profit, it truly has the interests of the sector at heart. All of Semta’s work in the policy arena is conducted with the interests of employers in mind.
