UK: Wool Workers Told Industry Has Bright Future
In his first address in his new role, Adrian Berry praised the industry's excellent record for exports and had a favourable balance of trade with the rest of the world in woollens and worsted of around £150m.
More than 200,000 workers - with the potential to produce goods worth £12.5bn - are employed in the textile and clothing industry said the managing director of the Bradford-based Clissold Group.
He added:"This is not an insignificant amount and proves there is still an industry to fight for. There are so many attributes we have got that others want, the chief being - 'Made in England'. That is a brand itself which overseas countries want to see."
