This Local Industrial Strategy represents a strong partnership between local leaders and government, setting out an ambitious plan to achieve the aspirations of the national Industrial Strategy and to continue to contribute to Greater Manchester’s prosperity.

The strategy is based on the robust evidence provided by the 2019 Independent Prosperity Review, and the 2016 Science and Innovation Audit.

It sets out how Greater Manchester will work with government to:

  • set Greater Manchester up to be a global leader in health and care innovation;
  • position Greater Manchester as a world-leading region for innovative firms to experiment with, develop and adopt advanced materials in manufacturing;
  • build on Greater Manchester’s position as a leading European digital city-region, to maximise growing assets in cyber security;
  • enable the digitalisation of all sectors and capitalise on the links between digital and creative; industries that feed internationally significant clusters in broadcasting, content creation and media;
  • launch the UK’s first city-region Clean Growth Mission to achieve carbon neutral living in Greater Manchester by 2038; and
  • ensure that the education, skills and employment system allow everyone to reach their potential.
