LONDON, 05-1-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — Mike Rigby, Head of Manufacturing at Barclays, comments on today’s PMI manufacturing figures.
“2014 finished on an encouraging note for the manufacturing sector, with growth still moving in the right direction despite broadly benign UK macroeconomic conditions impacting on levels of new investment. As we enter a new year, the hope is that manufacturers come flying out of the blocks with their focus firmly fixed on new export markets and investment in new product development, innovation and machinery.”
