The GPMA is the Graphic Print & Media Alliance which consists of trade associations representing companies operating in the graphics print media industry supply chain. The organisation has recently responded to a green paper issued by the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The GPMA stated: "We believe we share in common with Government the desire to see an industrial strategy which will focus on UK productivity and competitiveness and which will provide support to the UK's industrial base as its adapts to overcome any challenges and maximise any opportunities from the decision to leave the EU."
Debbie Waldron Hoines, representing the needs of the EFIA membership, input to the response with respect to the needs of the flexography industry including skill shortages and the requirement for improved training and educational support. The EFIA Academy was promoted as an example of the industry working together to support its development.
