Consultation description

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

This green paper sets out our approach and some early actions we have committed to take. It is not intended to be the last word, but instead to start a consultation.

We hope anyone with an interest will respond. We want to hear from every part of the country, every sector of industry and businesses of every size – and from the people who work in them and use them.
