New report from 100 business leaders calls for Government to pick winning technologies to drive innovation-led growth in UK
Over the last six months I have consulted over 100 leading entrepreneurs, investors, academics and CEOs to find out what they want the Government to do to kickstart the economic recovery.The conclusions of these Roundtable discussions have been published by PA Consulting Group in a major new report called Voice of Growth. The message is clear; we need a Government “Industrial Strategy for Innovation-led Growth”. They are not asking for a 1970s style industry strategy based on protectionism and subsidy. They want a modern, business-led industry strategy that backs technologies and specific sectors with the greatest potential to unlock sustainable UK growth. They want a partnership approach where the Government supports their development through fiscal incentives, backs them to pursue new export markets and minimises the barriers to their growth - such as unnecessary regulatory burdens. The Prime Minister's recent speech on the economy indicates the Government is responding to this strong steer.
