Industrial Strategy: How to secure manufacturing growth

Thursday 14th September 2023

Theatre :  Supply Chain, Trade and Policy 

t4

If we were to grow the manufacturing sector from 10% to 15% of GDP it would generate an additional £142bn to the UK economy, creating even more high-quality jobs in regions where the Government wants to level up. But if we are to fulfil manufacturers’ ambitions to grow, we need a plan, and a long-term plan. With the UK the only major nation to not have an Industrial Strategy we are making the case for one to secure long term economic growth.
