Here’s your chance to have your say on what more the government can do for your business.
Drive Midlands, in conjunction with BEIS, is coordinating a series of round table events, in order to collate responses relating to the newly released Green Paper, from businesses within the automotive supply chain. Feedback and questions will then be relayed to Government, helping to shape what an automotive sector ‘deal‘ might look like.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has released proposals for a modern Industrial Strategy – which incorporates the Building our Industrial Strategy ‘Green Paper’, which covers regulatory barriers, trade deals, innovation and skills.
This Green Paper aims to increase productivity and drive growth across the whole of the UK, and sets out 10 strategic ‘pillars’ to underpin this new government approach:
Investing in science, research and innovation
Supporting businesses to start and grow
Improving procurement processes
Encouraging trade and inward investment
Delivering affordable energy and clean growth
Cultivating world-leading sectors
Driving growth across the whole country
Creating the right institutions to bring together sectors and places
