“Our latest UK Powerhouse report reveals the huge positives that we have here in South Yorkshire. The Global Innovation Corridor will build on this and support our reputation as a hotbed for advanced manufacturing which I’m confident will help to attract further investment and interest from across the world.”
“Faced with the level of uncertainty that we have seen over the last month, these results are not surprising. March looks set to see this continue and although there are moves to delay Article 50 and also avoid a no-deal, an orderly Brexit is far from guaranteed and manufacturers must continue to prepare.”
“The uncertainty of Brexit is affecting all areas of the economy and the manufacturing sector is no different. All eyes are now on Westminster to see what terms we will be leaving the EU on and whether we will have an orderly exit.
“According to our own economic research, if Theresa May succeeds in getting her Withdrawal Agreement through Parliament over the coming weeks, business investment will fall and unemployment will rise next year. However, even in a no-deal scenario, the UK economy will be in a stronger position than it was during the financial crisis of 2007/8.
“The impact of Brexit will be significant, but it won’t be as bad as many fear and it is reassuring to see that many leaders in the manufacturing sector agree and remain optimistic.”
“Although this latest survey highlights a welcome boost in terms of new business, it is disappointing to see that exports figures are down again.
“It is perhaps not too surprising. UK manufacturers still don’t know what type of Brexit they will be dealing with and therefore many issues such as market access, tariffs, regulation, supply chains and access to labour, remain unresolved.
“At this stage, we don’t know the answer, but whatever happens over the next month or so, there’ll certainly be further changes for businesses, particularly those that trade overseas.”
