I visited Aberdeen in late August and had detailed discussions with senior representatives from the oil and gas sector at the MER UK Forum and at the Oil & Gas UK Joint Council which included discussions on the modern industrial strategy. I also had a round-table discussion on the topic of the industrial strategy with the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce. BEIS officials remain in close contact with oil and gas industry representatives.
