What does the UK economy have in store for manufacturing in 2020?

The Conservatives may have won the UK General Election, but there is no doubting that manufacturers continue to live in uncertain times, as trade wars, weakening investment and the major question mark over the country’s ultimate relationship with the EU leave businesses struggling with big investment decisions.
