Too often people tend to forget just how important manufacturing is to any given country’s prosperity. As the world has moved into the modern computer age, where technology is readily available as well as information, it can be simple to assume that Great Britain doesn’t actually make anything anymore. Society, as a whole, has become complacent with regard to this topic and issue and, while it may seem harmless on the surface, education and enlightenment are always cures for what ails one.
Make it in Great Britain is a campaign that is set on enlightening the general public about what this great nation actually produces. It is believed that the more that the general public knows and understands about these manufacturing innovations and contributions to the overall economy, the more they will grasp the full impact of those engineers and other workers who are behind this vast productivity.
Coinciding with the Olympics and Paralympic Games
The Make it in Great Britain campaign will be produced and displayed to coincide with the Olympic Games, to take place in the summer of 2012 in London. If one thinks or ponders about what Great Britain produces as far as manufacturing is concerned, at the moment, they may not come up with too many ideas off the top of their head. This will all change when the Make it in Great Britain campaign kicks off this summer.
Unfortunately, most of the views that citizens have of manufacturing are outdated, and government agencies as well as some of the top Great Britain manufacturers are combining their resources to refresh and recharge the notions of this powerful industry within Great Britain.
One of the Largest Manufacturers in the World
It often strikes the average layperson that Great Britain is one of the world’s leading manufacturers. In fact, the manufacturing sector contributes more than £140 billion to the United Kingdom’s economy. Why does all of this matter? As the world moves into an uncertain future, with the economies around the world in tepid waters, struggling to determine where the best approach to the future will lie, manufacturing has taken a bit of a back seat as far as its importance, at least as far as the public is concerned.
However, in reality, manufacturing has been and will remain a vital component of growth and prosperity well into the future for this great nation and the Make it in Great Britain campaign will highlight this and launch us into a prosperous future.
