“The Midlands accounts for 22% of all England’s exports and generates £239 billion for the UK economy. The majority of that comes from the manufacturing sector. Our region was the original global manufacturing pioneer and we continue to lead the world through our innovative responses in the fields of advanced manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, MedTech, food and drink, and much more.
Through consistent, scaled up public and private sector investment in our region’s immense manufacturing power and potential, from our SMEs to Midlands based major global players, we will continue to bring, and grow true wealth into our region and our country.”
Sir John Peace, Chairman, Midlands Engine
