The Midlands Engine welcomes consultation on a national Industrial Strategy Green Paper which will build on the UK’s economic strengths whilst tackling underlying weaknesses to secure our future as a competitive, global nation.

Green PaperWe can be a key partner of government as it seeks to drive growth across the whole country, upgrade infrastructure for a 21st century economy, cultivate world-leading sectors and promote international trade and inward investment.

The Industrial Strategy will become a central feature of the partnership between government and the Midlands Engine and a key driver of improved performance and increasing economic growth across the region.

The Midlands Engine offers the government our unqualified backing in the belief that working together, with the appropriate level of support, and investment where possible, we can prove the point that when the Midlands succeeds, Britain succeeds.

The government’s Green Paper consultation closed on April 17th. The Midlands Engine full response can be downloaded here.
