On 23 January, the Government launched its industrial strategy green paper, "Building Our Industrial Strategy". This is the basis for a consultation that will run until 17 April 2017 which will seek views on the approach to building a modern industrial strategy, which will deliver an economy that works for everyone.
The strategy is based on 10 pillars which are important to drive forward the industrial strategy across the entire economy. Developing skills is one of these pillars and as a result there are a number of points of particular interest in the paper. These have been outlined in more detail in the today's FAB Weekly Update.
