Government developing an Industrial Strategy


The Government is developing a modern Industrial Strategy to build on our strengths and enable all parts of the country to succeed. Its aim is to help deliver a high wage, high skilled and competitive economy that works for all. To ensure it becomes a reality the Government is asking for ideas and feedback and has published a green paper that sets out its vision, and the 10 pillars on which the Industrial Strategy is based. It wants to hear from every part of the country, every sector of industry and businesses of every size. In Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the LEP has been asked to co-ordinate the response from the business community. We want to have a genuinely open and collaborative conversation about the skills, research, infrastructure and the other things we need to get right to drive long term economic growth and productivity in our area.

Workshop events and getting involved

The LEP is organising a series of Industrial Strategy workshops events to which local businesses are being invited. These will focus on different themes including skills, finance, education, rural and priority sectors. Each workshop will set out key priorities and these will be widely circulated for further comment in an online survey. This will be promoted by the LEP and its partners, including local business groups. The LEP will gather the survey responses into a collaborative feedback report that will be sent as the response from Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to the Industrial Strategy green paper.
