'A modern Industrial Strategy will be a landmark opportunity'

Our response to the Government’s Green Paper for a new Industrial Strategy.

'A modern Industrial Strategy will be a landmark opportunity'

Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:

“A modern Industrial Strategy will be a landmark opportunity to build a successful, modern economy as the foundation for a prosperous, fairer and more inclusive society. 

“It must help fix the country’s productivity problems and remove the regional inequalities that have dogged our country for generations, having a positive impact on living standards, wages and the future opportunities of many people.

“The CBI has long-called for a new Industrial Strategy and it’s welcome to see the Government creating an opportunity for all sectors to get involved.

“Our members across every region and nation of the UK will have a fundamental role to play to help shape the thinking and – most importantly – deliver the impact we all want to see.”
