Air League welcomes refreshed Industrial Strategy

The Air League welcomes today’s announcement; the Green Paper is a step in the right direction and if implemented correctly will create a consistent and long-term industrial strategy that will help UK aerospace thrive.

The revised industrial strategy set out today sends an important signal to business that the UK Government is serious about genuine collaboration between industry and Government.Genuine partnership to create the right conditions for business to thrive is key and it is particularly encouraging that in the Green Paper the Government has chosen to highlight aerospace – and in particular the Aerospace Growth Partnership – as a flagship model for collaboration.
