How can we deliver the Industrial Strategy?

In its Industrial Strategy white paper, published in November 2017, the government set out the changes being planned that will improve the productivity and earning power of people throughout the UK.

Infrastructure is one of the five ‘foundations of productivity’ highlighted in the white paper, which proposes a major upgrade to the UK’s transport, housing and digital infrastructure.

Perspectives on infrastructure: Delivering the Industrial Strategy explores how the public and private sectors need to collaborate effectively to deliver the government’s Industrial Strategy. Working with Infrastructure Intelligence magazine, the report features interviews with senior industry figures and the results from surveys of the public and industry.

This is the second report published by Burges Salmon and Infrastructure Intelligence magazine, following 2017’s Perspectives on infrastructure: How can we improve the delivery of UK infrastructure?
