MANUFACTURERS are returning to Britain from overseas for cheaper transportation and the benefits of having suppliers closer to home. Listen to informed debate in your weekly business programme from the Yorkshire Post.
The increasing trend towards “re-shoring” was one of the themes of this week’s debate on the future of UK industry hosted by the veteran Yorkshire MP Barry Sheerman, co-chairman of the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group
But Mr Sheerman warned employers against complacency and making the assumption that Britain will naturally create a high skill, high pay economy.
In this week’s programme, we report from the event.
Also in the programme:
• Can Yorkshire’s skills base support really specialised IT?
• The rationalised legal market in Leeds.
Digital Editor David Behrens is joined in the studio by the Yorkshire Post’s business editor Bernard Ginns and deputy business editor Greg Wright.
