The manifesto sets out a programme to boost investment and deliver a more skilled and productive workforce. Measures recommended also include developing a close collaboration between Government and business to strengthen different sectors, and a drive to develop good business practices by giving shareholders a greater say on executive pay and promoting employee engagement in decision-making.
Terry Scuoler, EEF CEO, said:
“Manufacturing industry must be at the heart of any new Government’s vision for a strong and successful economic plan for the UK. Manufacturing firms up and down the country represent the best of British business and they need to feel certain that Government is backing them in the face of the complex process of leaving the EU."
