Industrial Strategy points to agriculture as a key area for investment

UK Business Secretary Greg Clark launched a UK Industrial Strategy White Paper on Monday of this week, which picks up on the important role investment in new technology, particularly robotics, will play in farming’s future.

A review of how UK and Scottish Government agencies can better collaborate to support business in Scotland  was also announced.  The Industrial Strategy, is billed as driving growth across Scotland, boosting skills and improving productivity and infrastructure.

The review of business support, to be conducted in partnership with the Scottish Government, will improve both the consistency and impact of government support to businesses in Scotland, including helping Scottish business access UK supply chain contracts.

Today’s Industrial Strategy white paper sets out a long-term vision for how Britain can build on its economic strengths, address its productivity performance, embrace technological change and boast the earning power of people across the UK.

The White Paper follows extensive engagement by Government with industry, academia and business bodies who submitted almost 2,000 responses to the Green Paper consultation earlier in 2017.

The White Paper focuses on the five foundations of productivity – ideas, people, infrastructure, business environment and places – with a clear and complementary vision for each.
