Industrial Strategy

In November 2017 the Government published the Industrial Strategy: Fit for the Future, a long term plan to boost the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK, setting out how we are building a Britain fit for the future.

Fit for the Future focuses on the five foundations of productivity: Ideas, People, Infrastructure, Business Environment and Places.

It sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future. The first four Grand Challenges focus on the global trends which will transform our future: Growing the Artificial Intelligence and Data Driven Economy, Clean Growth, Future of Mobility and our Ageing Society.

As part of the Industrial Strategy, government also published Sector Deals, partnerships between government and industry to tackle sector-specific issues.

Local Industrial Strategy

The Industrial Strategy recognises the leading role that LEPs have in shaping and delivering locally-led economic growth. Local Enterprise Partnerships are tasked with developing Local Industrial Strategies. These strategies will align with the national industrial strategy and will be long-term. Government has identified the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Growth Corridor area, which includes the South East Midlands, as one of three trailblazer areas for the first of the Local Industrial Strategies, due to be complete by March 2019. The area was chosen because of our potential to drive wider regional growth, focusing on clusters of expertise and centres of economic activity.

SEMLEP will be working with neighbouring LEPs, the Greater Cambridge and Peterborough Combined Authority, Local Authorities and other partners to develop this Local Industrial Strategy.
