Editor's Comment 

By the time you read this comment the next Government will be in place, and it will have to face the number one concern for manufacturers – Brexit. Industry wants real vision and ambition for the UK economy in the next parliament and the policies to back it up in a post Brexit world - moving away from blame politics. Only when the uncertainty over the direction of travel on Brexit is ended will manufacturers really turn on the taps of much needed investment to boost the UK’s productivity performance. This investment is critical to UK manufacturing, and with the sector facing increased global competition and major change in respect of industry 4.0 and sustainability, we now need this uncertainty to end.
