The CBI responded to the announcement by Nissan that 1,000 new jobs will be created at its plant in Sunderland, following a £250m investment.
John Cridland, CBI Director-General, said:
“This news is the cherry on the cake for the UK’s automotive industry in 2012, following a year of many success stories across the country. This major investment once again demonstrates the competitiveness of UK manufacturing.
"So we must build on the momentum the industry has gained this year by developing an industrial strategy that will deliver for all of our high-performing sectors in 2013.”
