Response to Economy 2030 Consultation
Manufacturing NI have published their response to Economy 2030: An Industrial Strategy for Northern Ireland.
MNI welcome much of the content of the strategy, including the focus on developing the private sector, and a commitment to benchmark against the world’s leading, small advanced economies and to increase annual spend on Research and Development.
However, elsewhere we believe the plan is weak, doesn’t commit to create the conditions in which businesses can compete and lacks appropriate success measures. We also believe there is insufficient ambition, urgency, a timeline and no ideas to address the risks and opportunities from the UKs decision to exit the EU.
