Industrial Strategy

The white paper sets out a long-term plan to boost the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK – and specifically for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

27 November 2017

The much anticipated Industrial Strategy White Paper was released on Monday 27 November.

The white paper sets out a long-term plan to boost the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK – and specifically for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, provides the potential for support for key issues such as supporting the growth of our key sectors, building on our 10 Opportunities presentation; support for those furthest from the workplace and a welcome less urban focus, influenced by our joint work on the South West Rural Productivity Commission, which is referenced.

The paper describes the also anticipated Local Industrial Strategies and how LEPs will lead on the production of these, working with local partners; and is positive about the continued development of increased responsibilities for Local Enterprise Partnership delivery.

The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (CIoS) LEP is leading our region’s response to the Government’s Industrial Strategy Green Paper which will drive Government support for business in the coming years.

Your thoughts are extremely important to ensure we respond concisely and accurately. This survey builds on the LEP’s recent round table events that people from both the public and private sector kindly gave up their time to attend.

Encouragingly, there was general consensus on the issues and opportunities CIoS faces (read the round table report here) but we now need to get into the finer detail so that when we feed back to Government we can present a true picture of what our priorities are, and how our region can support the delivery of the Industrial Strategy for the benefit of our and the UK’s economy.

The survey is nine questions long and aims to capture some specific issues we’d like more input on. There are also opportunities to share your opinions throughout if you have time. There is a section at the end for any final thoughts to ensure we have captured everything. The deadline for responses is 27th March.

I would like to personally thank you on behalf of the LEP Board for taking the time to complete this survey and we look forward to reading your responses.

Helping us develop a modern Industrial Strategy

The Government is developing a modern Industrial Strategy to build on our strengths and enable all parts of the country to succeed. Its aim is to help deliver a high wage, high skilled and competitive economy that works for all.

To ensure it becomes a reality the Government is asking for ideas and feedback and has published a green paper that sets out its vision, and the 10 pillars on which the Industrial Strategy is based. It wants to hear from every part of the country, every sector of industry and businesses of every size.

In Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the LEP has been asked to co-ordinate the response from the business community.

We want to have a genuinely open and collaborative conversation about the skills, research, infrastructure and the other things we need to get right to drive long term economic growth and productivity in our area.

Workshop events and getting involved

The LEP organised a trio of round tables across CIoS in Pool, Launceston and St Austell. We would like to thank everyone who attended the sessions.

Watch a short video from the first of our round table business events at Pool Innovation Centre, and hear why it is so important that Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly help shape the Industrial Strategy.
