UK Industrial Strategy Update

The UK’s newly-published Industrial Strategy sets out a compelling new approach and vision for the UK economy, preparing for opportunities and challenges in the decades ahead.
 
It sets out a long-term plan to strengthen and grow an economy with innovation and creativity at its heart, supported by a strategic public and private investment in R&D. Through this Strategy, the UK commits to building on its strengths, boosting the productivity and earning power of people across all industries, continuing to make the UK one of the most competitive places in the world to start or grow a business.
 
In this regard there are few better to hear from than Gareth Davies, Director General Business and Science at the Department for Business, Industrial Strategy and Skills. He will be providing an overview of the Strategy and how the UK plans to connect with international partners in these areas.   
 
On top of the Industrial Strategy update, there will be a Q&A and discussion segment, as well as opportunity to network with fellow guests before and after.
 
Access the white paper and read the Industrial Strategy summary for context here.
