Meet the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group for POLICY ADVICE DROP-IN SESSIONS
On April 4th and 5th, the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group is holding a series of one-on-one consultation sessions for visitors to the Industry 4.0 Summit & Factories of the Future Expo.
Featuring Head of Manufacturing, Design & Innovation at Policy Connect (secretariat of the APMG), Dr George Dibb, these sessions will cover policy and Parliamentary affairs, allowing businesses to understand how policy changes will affect their company and what All-Party Parliamentary Groups do in the Houses of Parliament.
The All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group (APMG) exists to encourage the exchange of knowledge and understanding between Parliament and the UK’s diverse manufacturing industries, helping to raise the profile of manufacturing both inside and outside of Parliament.
Dr Dibb holds a PhD in Physics and has experience working for the National Physical Laboratory researching next-generation printed electronics from academic laboratory research to industrial manufacture; and previously worked at a European aerospace manufacture and design corporation.
The APMG hopes to make policy more accessible to manufacturing businesses as the Government develops its flagship industrial strategy. The consultations will take place throughout both days on the APMG’s stand, E20, near the entrance to the conference exhibition.
Industry 4.0 Summit Marketing Director, Jane Lees, said of the consultation sessions “We are really pleased to be hosting the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group for these important consultations, as many manufacturers and companies in the supply chain are looking at the Government’s plans for the industrial strategy – it’s important that we enable the link to be made between SME manufacturers, large scale manufacturers and government policy with the APMG.”
