Black Country Growth Report 2019

Black Country Growth Report 2019

So much so that this edition of the Black Country Growth Barometer includes an insert dedicated to the sector. While the Black Country’s industrial base continues to diversify, manufacturing remains the foundational pillar of the area’s economy. It is good to see moves such as the £12.5m investment in the Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills, a unique venture in the UK, aimed at strengthening the region’s hold on the manufacturing sector. We feature the Centre in our insert. And the Black Country is growing in areas beyond manufacturing. Alongside a focus on the manufacturing sector, this year’s Growth Barometer contains plenty to interest any high-growth company in the area, from the views of the Chamber of Commerce to the latest on Black Country infrastructure development.
