The Industrial Strategy Commission

Developing a new industrial strategy for the UK

The Industrial Strategy Commission is an independent, authoritative inquiry into the development of a new, long-term industrial strategy for the UK.

About

Nearly a decade after the global financial crisis, and in the wake of the Brexit vote, it is increasingly recognised by businesses and policymakers that the UK needs new economic thinking and practices to overcome stagnant productivity and regional economic disparities. A consensus is emerging for the first time in decades that industrial strategy has a central role to play in the UK economy.

The Commission will provide evidence-based policy recommendations for the development of a new industrial strategy. An open call for evidence has been announced.

We will examine the strengths and weaknesses of the UK economy, assess future challenges and opportunities; consider the relationship between the state, business and other bodies including universities; and set out the lessons from past UK experience and international comparisons. We will engage with leading experts, businesses and organisations from a wide range of sectors and industries.

Our Key Findings will be published in July 2017 with a final report in September 2017.
