Manufacturing stands as a cornerstone of the UK economy, driving major growth and innovation, and supporting 7.3 million jobs across the country. Accounting for around 50% of UK exports, and almost a quarter of the national GDP, manufacturing plays a pivotal role in shaping the UK’s future trajectory; fostering economic resilience and prosperity, and fuelling key research that leads to breakthroughs in technology and sustainability. 

Manufacturing: Industry, Innovation and Impact’ will highlight the positive impact of the manufacturing industry and its crucial role in the UK, looking at the demand for UK manufactured goods and how technical advancements and digitalisation enables this. The programme will also explore what the sector is doing to meet sustainability and net-zero targets, and the exciting array of careers and upskilling opportunities in manufacturing. 

There are commercial opportunities for leading organisations to be featured in the programme and spearhead their own news item. If your organisation wants to share what you stand for and be part of this important conversation, please contact ITN Business’ Programming Directors James Salver and Michael Holt.
