About this event

The repositioning of the world’s economies has led to a sharpening of focus towards value creation and innovation. Yet it has taken five years to achieve a point where the seeds of recovery are beginning to germinate and the question is; could this have been achieved sooner had the reliance on service provision and finance not been the driving force behind perceived economic value. Taken to a natural conclusion, do economies still require the ability to produce tangible items of consumption and where do Engineering and Engineers stand on this road to recovery?
