Editor's Comment 

The Government’s recent energy security statement has rightly put investment in the technologies of the future that are necessary to secure energy supply and keep the UK’s transition to net zero on track.

2023 is going to be a year of opportunities and challenges. Despite COVID-19 no longer being the main news on our TV screens and in the newspapers, the fallout from the last few years of the pandemic has nevertheless disrupted global supply chains and this may continue to affect UK manufacturers in 2023. Issues such as shortages of raw materials and shipping delays may impact production schedules and increase costs.

With news that Moderna is in discussions with the Government about investing in a multi-million Pound research and messenger RNA manufacturing facility in the UK, the outlook for UK manufacturing is looking increasingly positive, and is a significant vote of confidence in the UK.
