CBI responds to launch of West Midlands industrial strategy

The CBI has responded to the launch of the first local industrial strategy.

Richard Butler, CBI West Midlands Director yesterday said:

“As the first local industrial strategy to be launched, we hope the West Midlands Industrial Strategy will start a domino effect of robust strategies being rolled out across the country.

“It shows the real value of political leaders working with one another to unlock economic growth - creating jobs, driving productivity and improving living standards across communities.

“The West Midlands is well positioned to deal with the big challenges of tomorrow, with the Advanced Propulsion Centre delivering zero emission vehicles and the region’s development of the UK’s first multi-city 5G testing ground.

“The best way to build upon the strengths of the UK’s vibrant regions is for business and politicians to work closely together. Now is the time to redouble efforts on implementing the local industrial strategies, making their impact real to businesses and people across the country. Failure to address our stubbornly persistent productivity challenge is not an option.”
