UK Steel’s first session will present an academic assessment of UK supply chain and identify challenges in a post Brexit landscape. This will be supported by speaker from a high profile OEM and an opposing view arguing that the UK may not require the traditional manufacturing environment. With UK Steel’s Procurement Charter gathering strength with public and private sector commitments to include British steel in major projects, do the social, environmental and economic benefits of localised supply chains have real value in a modern economy?
This session will feature a panel debate to discuss a range issues that will be voted on by you the audience. This is your opportunity to challenge the speakers from the 1st session and say why we must strengthen our national supply chains or adapt to a post 4IR economy. Does your business rely on a strong localised supply chain? Is additive manufacturing changing the way you trade? Does manufacturing even have a role to play in the UK’s economic future? There will be a chance to vote on and discuss these issues and more.
