Andrew Johnson, Senior Economist, EEF
‘Rebalancing the economy’ is the on-going catch-cry for politicians and policy makers since 2008 even as manufacturing has endured several twists and turns and the UK has struggled to emerge from the worst recession in 80 years. This presentation will look at how the sector has performed over the past couple of years, where it is likely to go in the next year, and in the context of the 20 March Budget, how the government is helping – or hindering – a rebalancing of the economy.
Billy Hamilton Stent, Managing Director, Loudhouse
Billy Hamilton Stent presents findings from exclusive research of 200 UK manufacturing businesses, providing insight into the challenges and business inhibitors facing the industry. The presentation will include particular insight into the impact of innovation, money & finance, technology, management and talent on UK manufacturers, establishing what’s required in order to ‘manufacture success’.
