The governor of the Bank of England visited two High Value Manufacturing Catapult Centres to see how they play a key role in economic growth
Governor Mark Carney was given an overview of the AMRC cluster by AMRC executive dean Professor Keith Ridgway and Nuclear AMRC chief executive Mike Tynan.
During his visit, Carney took part in a panel discussion with leading figures from advanced engineering and regional businesses, and gave a speech to an invited audience of around 200 business people. The governor’s speech is expected to be his last public appearance before the UK’s general election in May.
Carney praised the University of Sheffield AMRC as a prime example of Sheffield’s continuing spirit of hard work and innovation.
"No one knows better than you that manufacturing needs to become ever-more productive to prosper in a world of steadily falling prices and relentless international competition,"
