The glamour of web fads and video gaming is being put ahead of tangible technology that can be exported from the UK, Sir James Dyson has said.
Speaking to the Radio Times, the British entrepreneur famous for inventing the Dyson vacuum cleaner said too much emphasis was being placed on sectors such as the game industry, instead of traditional manufacturing.
Dyson went on to say the UK government must do more to attract the best in engineering and science so that the UK could compete on an international level, and that it must then also retain their services for its own businesses.
He claimed that nine in ten engineering graduates left the UK after finishing their studies.
