Abstract:

The UK motor industry is set to play a leading role in the re-balancing of the economy. Strong support and investment from global vehicle manufacturers is helping the UK lead the transition to ultra low carbon vehicles. The government needs to build upon the industrial activism agenda initiated under the Labour administration to encourage sustained investment in R&D, skills and capital equipment. A stronger manufacturing sector can help to build a better balanced economy and fairer society.
