Industrial Strategy consultation now open.

The UK government has released an Industrial Strategy green paper setting out its vision for a modern industrial strategy and some early actions it has committed to take. It aims to start a genuinely open and collaborative conversation about the skills, research, infrastructure and the other things we need to get right to drive long term growth in productivity.

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

We hope anyone with an interest will respond. We welcome your comments on the approach and ideas that have been set out, in order to make the industrial strategy effective in delivering an economy that works for everyone.

The green paper is available here.
