The Prime Minister Theresa May used her first regional Cabinet meeting to launch the long-awaited industrial strategy green paper. As anticipated the green paper set out 10 strategic pillars intended to underpin the Government’s vision for a strategy which will improve living standards and economic growth by increasing productivity and driving growth across the whole country. The lengthy paper includes many encouraging initiatives; however, the strategy’s implementation might prove challenging, particularly when set against the backdrop of Brexit.
The paper emphasises that this is the start of the discussion and invites industry to contribute to the consultation which closes on 17th April 2017. The strategy provides an important opportunity for industry to engage, including clear questions for consultation. This document sets out the key areas of development, highlighting those that are likely to have an impact on life sciences.
