Rebalancing the economy

  • Share

The UK is showing strong signs of recovery from the recent recession and holds the number one position in Europe for Foreign Direct Investment. Our 2014 UK Attractiveness Survey tells a compelling story of growth, but raises issues around the concentration of investment in London, with our regions showing slower signs of recovery. At EY, we are committed to understanding the reasons behind this and to start looking at ways in which the UK can effectively ‘rebalance its economy'. We believe that now is the time to consider the manufacturing opportunity.
