A £2bn investment to keep aerospace technology as the UK's "jewel in our crown" has
been announced.

Some 115,000 jobs will be secured as the funding, over a seven
-
year period, is provided by the
government and the aerospace industry. An institute will be
created with the money to develop
aircraft that are quieter and more energy
-
efficient.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced

the
strategy

during a visit to Airbus in Filton,
Bristol. He said: "Aerospace experts with highly specialised skills are working hard to make sure
the UK remains Europe's number one aerospace manufacturer. We're doing all we can to maintain
this jewel in our c
rown, which is why government is working hand in hand with industry to inject
£2bn into a unique long
-
term strategy to maintain Britain's position as the centre of aerospace
technology. The government is to provide £1bn of the funding with the aerospace in
dustry
matching the amount.

Business secretary Vince Cable, who chairs an aerospace business leaders' group, said the
seven
-
year commitment would "anchor the sector in the UK for a long time to come". "Our
aerospace sector already supports more than 3,000
companies and employs 230,000 people
across the UK," he added. "The potential for growth is huge. By 2031 the civil aerospace market
will be worth in excess of 4.5 trillion US dollars."

The government said the "high
-
tech and high
-
skill" aerospace industry
has 3,000 companies and
230,000 employees in the UK. It said the industry must respond to opportunities for both a
demand for greener aircraft, and a forecast for 27,000 new passenger aircraft and 40,000
commercial helicopters. Meanwhile, Indonesia's low c
ost Lion Air has placed its first order with
Airbus, asking for 234 A320 family aircraft.
