Will the UK’s proposed post-Brexit industrial strategy meet the challenges of new global opportunities? The UK Government has now set out to construct a new industrial strategy and has indicated in the recent Green Paper that lessons drawn from other countries will play a part.
In co-operation with our member Pinsent Masons and the German-British Forum, the BCCG Regional Committee for the UK is delighted to invite you and your colleagues to a panel discussion to explore how the German experience and policies have driven a successful export-led industrial sector and how the UK can adapt and implement best practice.
The Panel will discuss the fundamental elements in developing an industrial strategy including promoting innovation, increasing R&D, improving skills and productivity, infrastructure investment, and focusing on sectors and regions. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to join in the debate.
Moderated by Bob Bischof, Chairman of the German British Forum, the panel features contributors with experience of both UK and German industry:
