3rd August 2020 UK Manufacturing Fighting Back From Coronavirus
Business Activity In The UK Is Bursting Out All Over
Looking at some businesses on the High Street you can see some that are now busier than they ever have been. Restaurant and Cafe owners are striving to get back into business and recover from the coronavirus pandemic in the UK. It is not just the restaurants and food outlets.
Growth in the UK private sector has exploded into life. The Composite Purchasing Managers Index PMI from IHS Market for July notched up a 5 year high way faster than the gloomy economic forecasters were anticipating. Its early days but if the whole private sector can continue to trade at anything like this level of business activity then thousands of jobs can be saved and a V shaped economic recovery by October 2020 is very much on.
The Services sector has exploded into life but the manufacturing sector is chipping in with its fastest UK manufacturing output in July since November 2017. Manufacturing is again growing in the UK.
To sustain the UK recovery and protect jobs the UK consumer needs to demand more and that means spend spend spend the money that has been squirreled away during the first couple of months of the pandemic in the UK.

If Business Leaders In UK Want To Prepare For 4th Industrial Revolution They Should Shun UK Prime Minister Encouragement To Get Back To The Office
In the short term this winter is threatened with a second wave of the virus which could kill more than 100000 additional people in UK. Meanwhile the UK Prime Minister wants people to get back into the office from the 1st August. Such a major change in strategy is wrong in short term for the safety of people and the NHS ability to cope this winter with the virus Winter Flu and backlog of normal ailments and diseases.
In the medium to long term the UK Prime Minister may look at the unbalanced investment in the City Of London and think he has to put everybody back into rabbit hutches to save the previously flawed business strategy of several governments going back to Tony Blair.
The way forward is not to go back to the past inefficient polluting and family damaging ways of working. To grasp the opportunity of the 4th Industrial Revolution people must continue to work from home and the UK governments in London Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland need to change policy to support the diversification and dispersion of work to the country the coast and towns across the UK.
Either By Design Or By Default England Has Ditched The National Lockdown Policy
The economic need to release the country from lockdown has resulted in majority of businesses being opened in recent weeks or coming couple of weeks. The UK as a whole is effectively moving towards this risk management strategy as new infections have continued to fall. It is a sensible political and economic choice.
Many parts of the UK are relatively untouched by the virus in terms of infection but the whole country has been devastated economically by the virus. This could never continue. The decision had to be made as to when to reopen the UK for business and effectively abandon the national lockdown policy.
The inevitable local spikes in infections will be tackled by local lockdowns as Leicester has already experienced. It means that where people take responsibility to control the spread of the virus they are not held back in parts of the country less compliant with good social distancing and cleanliness. This local lockdown policy applies to individual businesses as well as individual villages towns and whole cities.
Effectively this is how we will live now and potentially forever should there be no vaccine! The cautious suggestion that a vaccine will be found within the next 12 months means that lifelong local lockdown is unlikely but local lockdowns will be a feature for many more months at least.
