He went on to add that Germany remains an important market for UK automotive manufacturers and the pavilion represents an opportunity to highlight the cutting-edge developments of British technology developers.

Launched in 2016, the APC has so far supported 233 UK businesses at key international events around the world.

To date, companies taking part in the programme have received additional investment of £1.5 million a year.

This latest showcase will see five companies returning, having previously participated. The UK Pavilion in Germany will form part of the government’s ongoing GREAT Business campaign and being funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
