21 Oct Competing in the global economy
Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) (RAEng) 2011
The Royal Academy of Engineering held a series of three debates between October 2010 and January 2011 in which Fellows of the Academy, senior engineers and other interested people from the government and policy, business, and academic communities were invited to consider and then to vote on motions that covered important issues affecting UK competitiveness in international markets. The three debates covered wide-ranging issues affecting the UK’s competitiveness in the global economy, and each was self-contained. The points raised in the individual debates are summarised in this report. The report also records a number of themes and common threads that emerged from the debates, reflecting wider concerns and areas where further investigation might be helpful.
