How can we create a UK manufacturing renaissance?

15 September 2021 - Late morning - Login for venue

Stephen Kinnock MP, Shadow Minister for Asia & the Pacific

Supply problems during the pandemic have exposed the risks of depending on just-in-time supply from foreign manufacturers. Furthermore, heightened security concerns are making western governments opposed to the use of some Chinese technology products in vital infrastructure. There is thus a need and an opportunity to expand UK manufacturing to address these newly apparent risks and harness British research, skills and innovations. Stephen Kinnock MP, Shadow Minister for Asia & the Pacific will lead a discussion of the steps we could take to create a UK manufacturing renaissance to provide more high value jobs and to increase UK prosperity and security.

Respondents include:

James Selka, CEO, Manufacturing Technologies Association

Jennifer Pheasey, Head of Policy, The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders

Robert McIlveen, Director of Public Affairs, Mineral Products Association
