The Government published the Industrial Strategy Green Paper on 23 January 2017.

This document outlines how Government intends to build on the diverse strengths of our cities and regions, including Exeter, using record investment in infrastructure, research and innovation and inward investment to ensure higher growth is seen across the UK.

We welcome the views of people, businesses and organisations across the country, which is why ministers from this department are undertaking an extensive regional engagement programme and will be visiting the South-West shortly.
