Our refreshed Defence Industrial Policy outlines the action we have already taken, and the further steps we will take to help the UK defence industry grow and compete.

The Government's Industrial Strategy also sets out how we will boost the productivity throughout the economy. Many of the themes in this apply to Defence which has an important role to play in promoting competition, innovation and exports.
