Editor's Comment 

As we step into 2024, the manufacturing landscape in Britain appears to be more positive with a renewed sense of optimism, according to a major survey conducted by Make UK and PwC. The findings underscore a significant shift in perception, with British manufacturers increasingly viewing the UK as a more competitive destination compared to last year, outpacing their European counterparts

The Chancellor’s recent Autumn Statement has resulted in a range of opinions among industry leaders, highlighting both commendations and reservations within the manufacturing sector. The most notable was Stephen Phipson, Chief Executive of Make UK, who was pleased with the Chancellor’s strategy for providing long-awaited policy certainty crucial for investment decisions. The permanence of full expensing and initiatives to boost engineering apprenticeships align with industry aspirations, prompting Phipson to call for seizing the gauntlet and unlocking transformative growth, which is difficult not to agree with.
