Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce comment on Jaguar Land Rover statement

Chief Executive of Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, Louise Bennett

Louise Bennett, Chief Executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “The news of any job losses is always damaging – both for the individuals it affects and also the wider economy.

“But the fact that this is Jaguar Land Rover, which is such a major employer in our region and such a key player in the wider economy, brings that into even sharper focus.

“Until the full details emerge, we won’t know the exact extent of the impact on Coventry and Warwickshire but it’s vital that partners across the region come together to do all we can to work with the company, individuals affected and the supply chain.

“It must be remembered however that Jaguar Land Rover continues to invest extensively in and outside the region, while our wider economy remains strong.”
