Time running out for feedback on the Government’s Industrial Strategy

Businesses have less than two weeks remaining to leave feedback on the Government’s Industrial Strategy.

The strategy aims to improve living standards and economic growth by increasing productivity and driving growth across the whole country.

The Industrial Strategy green paper sets out Government’s vision for a modern industrial strategy and some early actions Government has committed to take. It aims to start a genuinely open and collaborative conversation about the skills, research, infrastructure and other elements needed to drive long term growth in productivity.

The green paper sets out how Government proposes to build its industrial strategy and is intended to start a consultation. Businesses are being encouraged to provide comments as part of a broad discussion on the approach and ideas we have set out, in order to make the industrial strategy effective in delivering an economy that works for everyone.

When responding please state whether you are responding as an individual or representing the views of an organisation.

To provide your feedback on the Industrial Strategy, leave your comments on the Government consultation webpage before the 17 April deadline.
