AP: Report: New England should do more to nurture manufacturing
As originally appearing in Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) – New England can reclaim its title as a manufacturing hub by working together to nurture the development of the advanced manufacturing industry.

That’s the conclusion of a new report being released Wednesday by the nonpartisan New England Council.

The new advanced manufacturing sector bears little resemblance to the shipyards and textile mills that dotted the region’s landscape in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Instead it requires more technologically savvy workers to produce highly precise, customized components with complex designs – including those needed in the defense, aerospace and biotechnology fields.

The report says the nurturing of the advanced manufacturing sector will also require coordination between government, schools and industries to ensure there are enough skilled workers to fill the needed jobs.

The report says New England’s six states should collaborate to support the industry.
