MAN Reaction to Industrial Strategy

Nov 28, 2017

“On the surface the Industrial Strategy looks like great news for industry and seems to focus on all of the areas that will help us improve our competitiveness, including emerging technologies, training and development and support for growth sectors.

The UK is well placed right now to show ambition and the strategy has to successfully engage Government, academia and industry, especially the SMEs that remain the lifeblood of our manufacturing base.

My only concern is the ‘how’. It’s very easy to put a nice document together that says all the right things…I want to understand some of the detail behind the practical application and how it will be rolled out.

Most important of all, I want all the political parties to get behind the Industrial Strategy and not see it as an election bargaining chip.”

 

Tony Hague, Chairman of the Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN) and MD of PP Control & Automation
