Next week the government is expected to publish its industrial strategy, as part of the Chancellor's autumn statement (although @bbclaurak has suggested it could be delayed). If you want to know what it will cover, business minister Greg Clark pretty much set out the chapter headings in a speech he gave 2 weeks ago. I have highlighted them below. This certainly looks set to be a comprehensive plan: looking at economic growth on a regional basis and looking at a wide variety of ingredients needed to support innovation and productivity in sectors where the UK can be globally competitive.
Industrial strategy The potential of every part of this country is beyond doubt. It just needs to be unleashed. Fully mobilised through an upgrade in our underlying economic connections: A world class science and research base. Leading edge industrial sectors. A skilled and productive workforce. Smart and sustainable infrastructure. Affordable, attractive housing. Strong and self-confident communities. High environmental standards. World-respected corporate governance. These are the foundations on which we need to build the future success of the British economy And upgrading each of these is what our industrial strategy will achieve.
