Westminster Business Forum

Greater Manchester’s Local Industrial Strategy - innovation, infrastructure and skills

June 2019

Timed to follow the publication of the Greater Manchester Local Industrial Strategy, this conference brought together stakeholders to discuss the way forward for realising its aims of boosting productivity, earnings and wellbeing across the Greater Manchester region.

As one of the three ‘trailblazer’ areas in the UK, the Manchester Local Industrial Strategy aims to create well-paid jobs in new industries, increase competitiveness in high employment sectors and build on local strengths and opportunities to create a digitally-enabled, green city-region.

Delegates discussed priorities for supporting innovation and boosting productivity, developing workforce skills, and delivering the infrastructure that businesses and communities need.

Shortly after every Westminster Business Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
