Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


How can we ensure the implementation of the Industrial Strategy is fit
for purpose in serving all communities? What future delivery processes,
guidance or activities are needed in addressing the needs and prospects of
rural economies? These questions are vital to its success. In England alone,
rural areas contribute at least over a million enterprises, 3.5 m employees
and £250b GVA, matching the value of output from the country’s ten
leading cities outside London. Rural economies have untapped potential but need support to help them play their part in delivering the aims of the UK Industrial Strategy.
