24Finding The Talent For Ni Manufacturing2019090820190909 (RU)

Manufacturing remains a key sector of our economy, employing around 90,000 people. That's the highest level in 10 years. It's also supposed to be an important part of our economic future. Advanced Manufacturing was a key plank of Stormont's planned industrial strategy. Like any sector, if it's to thrive it has to keep attracting talent, but with one estimate suggesting only 6 % of young people see it as a career, it faces a stark problem. And then there are the number of women working in the sector - just around 1 in 5 of the total. So what can be done about that?

How can we attract more young people and women into the manufacturing sector here?

25Ni Agri Food And A No-deal Brexit2019091520190916 (RU)

The idea of an all-Ireland food standards zone as part of a Brexit solution has remained at the top of the political agenda this week. It would mean Northern Ireland continuing to follow EU rules after Brexit as a way to prevent checks at the border. The Prime Minister's advisor has discussed the idea in Brussels - and it hasn't been ruled out by the DUP. It just emphasises how the food and agriculture industry has become central to the Brexit debate. It's food companies who would face some of the highest tariffs if there's no deal. Food products would also be hit with new and significant non-tariff barriers to trade with the EU. So how prepared is the industry?

What are the implications for our agri-food sector if there's a no-deal Brexit?
