Adam McGiveron, head of Brexit and advanced manufacturing at Shakespeare Martineau says that the ‘grand challenges’ of the Government’s industrial strategy can’t happen without Brexit negotiation success.
The new Industrial Strategy Policy is a hefty document. It weighs in at 255 pages and sets out specific priorities backed up by consultation and expert evidence. The Government’s Brexit white paper was a much thinner affair. It took up just 77 pages. It was short on detail and little clarification has emerged since publication.
