In this latest piece, John Mills argues that the only way to secure a brighter economic future from Coronavirus is by creating the conditions for manufacturers to thrive and compete, just like we did in 1932.
The John Mills Institute for Prosperity has teamed up with Civitas to set out a clear plan on the UK's road to recovery after the Covid-19 crisis.
The Chair of the Institute for Prosperity's Advisory Board, Caroline Flint, argues the need for manufacturing for Britain's economy to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
In our first report into the economic impact of coronavirus - Manufacturing a Recovery from Coronavirus - we are calling for increased investment in UK manufacturing to prevent a sharp fall in living standards over the next 10 years.
In the face of coronavirus, we are now facing the possibility of a lost decade, with years of low or even negative growth. The government has been quick to provide emergency support to businesses through cash injections, job retention schemes, and deferred tax bills. But this will not be enough.
