Manufacturing remains important to the Black Country region and is a key component of the regional economy and our Manufacturing Policy Group meets on a regular basis to discuss and examine themes which restrict growth and productivity. Through this campaign we aim to raise the awareness and profile of manufacturing issues in the Black Country on a national scale, lobbying to support the needs of the local business community.
As part of our 2019/2020 Business Manifesto, we have a priority to support our manufacturing members and work towards tackling the issues and topics which matter to them.
Our three manifesto commitments are:
- Highlight policy decisions and issues affecting the automotive supply chain
- Raise awareness of Research & Development Tax Credits and how they can benefit our businesses
- Enhance communications between manufacturers and the wider business communities to drive efficiency and savings
