Manufacturing Council

With growing opportunities for the UK’s manufacturers in industrial digitisation, innovation and emerging
markets, the CBI is establishing a new Manufacturing Council to help support the UK’s makers. The CEO-level council will bring together dozens of the UK’s top manufacturers – small, medium and large – from across the country and will be chaired by Tom Crotty, group director of Ineos. At the heart of the group’s work will be: shaping the skills agenda to build a UK workforce fit to adapt to AI and digitisation; building a new visionary industrial strategy that supports productivity; creating pathways to the delivery of the UK’s target of 3% of GDP invested in R&D by 2020; and delivering a Brexit that works for the UK’s manufacturing base.
