RIBA President reacts to the new UK Government
RIBA President Jane Duncan said:
“The Conservative manifesto made the link between housing, infrastructure and good design in creating better communities and, quite rightly, recognised the absolutely vital role that architects play in improving lives. We will continue to reinforce this message with the new Conservative led Government.
“The forthcoming Brexit negotiations make this a particularly critical time for our sector, presenting challenges as well as opportunities for architects. The RIBA has been consistent and clear about our priorities: we must have access to the best talent from around the world, and mutual recognition of our members qualifications across the EU in order that the sector can continue to thrive.
“The RIBA will continue to serve as a strong voice for architects and calls on the UK Government to provide confidence and stability to our sector as the country adapts over the forthcoming weeks, months and years.”
