The UK government is consulting on its industrial strategy and as part of our response to this, we would like to gather opinions on some of the questions posed in the consultation.  We cannot proactively cover all of them in this way, but hope that you would give us some feedback on the selection we have chosen.

 

For reference, the 10 pillars of the proposed strategy are:

R&D

Skills

Infrastructure

Support to Grow

Procurement

Trade

Energy

Support for Sectors

Growth across the Country

Local Institutions
