Message sent on behalf of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP
Businesses and organisations across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are being urged to help shape a Local Industrial Strategy to drive economic growth and job creation in the next 10 years.
The Government has tasked every Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in England to lead and develop a Local Industrial Strategy in their area by 2020.
This will decide local economic priorities for the next decade, in line with the Government’s national Industrial Strategy, which aims to boost productivity and create high-quality, well-paid jobs.
The LEP is now asking businesses and organisations to be part of developing the strategy, starting with a call for evidence to draw out the relative strengths and weaknesses of the local economy, with an emphasis on increasing productivity.
The LEP has set up a brief online survey where businesses can submit their answers and find out more about the Local Industrial Strategy and what it aims to achieve. Find out more here or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments.
Evidence needs to be submitted to the LEP by Monday, 8 April so that it can be submitted for independent review and shaped into a draft strategy. The LEP will be consulting widely on the first draft of the Local Industrial Strategy later in the year.
