EEF welcomes government’s Growth Review

A manufacturers’ organisation has welcomed the government’s Growth Review announced yesterday.

Heralded as as a first step in a “fresh approach that must tackle the growth barriers facing the UK,” EEF believes that three elements of the proposals will be critical to its success.

EEF Chief Executive, Terry Scuoler, said: “Our economy doesn’t just need stronger growth, it needs a different type of it. We need a new approach from government to deliver growth that will last and is driven by innovation, investment and exports.

“To achieve this, we need a government which acts and thinks differently as a partner with the private sector.

“Industry has shown over the last year that it can deliver this growth but rebalancing our economy is a massive challenge. It is vital that government now works closely with business to put together a plan to meet it.”

EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation is the representative voice of manufacturing in the UK together with UK Steel.

EEF has a growing membership of over 6,000 companies of all sizes, employing some 900,000 people from every sector of engineering, manufacturing, engineering construction and technology-based industries.
