What Support Does Manufacturing Really Need? – Conference
Event Venue and Description – Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington
The Industrial Communities Alliance and Make UK invite you to participate in a free conference about how economic players can support manufacturers to thrive.
Three million people work in the UK’s manufacturing industries. Millions more work in the supply chain and auxiliary businesses. It is a crucial moment for the sector, with a number of opportunities and challenges on the horizon.
What support does manufacturing really need? invites manufacturers of all sizes and from all sectors to set out what support they need from local players to grow and drive up productivity. And for practitioners – from local and national government, regional bodies and other stakeholders – the conference will equip you with ideas on how to support the manufacturing base in your area.
Local players are confronting a number of policy questions not least related to Local Industrial Strategies in England, the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and Stronger Towns Fund. It will be essential that the voice of UK manufacturers is at the centre of deliberations, to maximise the effectiveness of policy and interventions aimed at strengthening local economies.
