The Government’s ambitious, modern Industrial Strategy sets out a long-term plan to boost the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK. Every region in the UK has a role to play in boosting the national economy.
As we leave the European Union and negotiate new trade deals we plan to build on our strong record of city, growth and devolution deals to ensure people and businesses in all regions of the UK can access markets and bring in the returns. To help make this a reality the government published a new vision for exports support in the Export Strategy recently. It sets a national ambition to transform our export performance and spread opportunities across all regions. We will achieve this by working with industry and partners in devolved and local governments.
