August 6, 2014

ENP Newswire - 06 August 2014

Release date- 06082014 - Mike Rigby, Head of Manufacturing at Barclays, comments on today's ONS Index of Production figures.

'Today's figures have revealed moderate year on year growth, with domestic demand continuing to account for the lion's share. However, it is the valuable export market, which has long been held up as the vital component for improved UK economic growth, that manufacturers are slowly but surely beginning to chase. A more concerted focus overseas is essential if we are to see continuing growth.
