The recently unveiled Industrial Strategy’s focus on exports, skills and innovation has taken great care to acknowledge that Brexit is accompanied by both challenges and opportunities. However, in the same manner as the health of the economy cannot be considered in isolation, an industrial strategy can only work if business policy is developed in tandem with other government policies such as devolution, regulation, and infrastructure spending.

Following the successful publication of Brexit Britain: the trade challenge, Prospect has commissioned a report designed to educate and inform parliamentarians and industry representatives about the impact of Brexit on industry.
