Industrial Strategy: UK Sector Analysis
Source: Department for Business Innovation and Skills (UK)
From the Foreword:
The UK is experiencing unprecedented economic developments. The economy has suffered as banks, governments and households seek to rebuild balance sheets after a period of unsustainable borrowing. Developments in the Eurozone and elsewhere depress business confidence and act as a brake on exports, investment and growth.
In these unprecedented circumstances, it is important to take stock of where future growth is likely to come from, and how this may be best achieved in these tight fiscal times.
This analytical paper reviews a range of evidence on which sectors could make the greater contribution to future economic growth and employment in the UK, and then considers in which Government action could add most value. These include parts of:
Advanced manufacturing, including aerospace, automotive and life sciences.
Knowledge intensive traded services, including professional and business services, the information economy and traded aspects of higher and further education.
Enabling sectors, such as energy and construction.
