The Future of Manufacturing in the UK
What role does the UK have in the manufacturing industries of the future? China has surpassed the US in manufacturing output, and is seen by many as the factory of the world. Labour rates in China and other developing countries are so much lower than those in the UK. We can’t possibly compete. Or can we?
