Governments Industrial Strategy Consultation
Posted on 25/01/2017


Governments Industrial Strategy Consultation

The Government wants to build an industrial strategy that addresses long-term challenges to the UK economy. Their aim is to improve living standards and economic growth by increasing productivity and driving growth across the whole country.

The green paper sets out their vision for a modern industrial strategy and some early actions they have committed to take. It aims to start a genuinely open and collaborative conversation about the skills, research, infrastructure and the other things they need to get right to drive long term growth in productivity. To achieve this goal, the paper sets out ten strategic pillars to underpin a new government approach.

Why They Are Consulting

The green paper sets out how they propose to build their industrial strategy. It is not intended to be the last word, but to start a consultation.

They hope anyone with an interest will respond and welcome your comments as part of a broad discussion on the approach and ideas they have set out, in order to make the industrial strategy effective in delivering an economy that works for everyone.
