Political opinion and current economic theory have for several decades opposed government leadership in the development of industrial strategy. This appeared to change after the Brexit vote and with the formation of the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Now business and politicians appear united on the need for a UK industrial strategy to address long term economic problems and counter the risks and uncertainties arising from Brexit. Come and hear Rachel Reeves MP, the new BEIS Select Committee Chair, give her views in a discussion of the priorities for and progress towards an effective UK industrial strategy.
