This Local Industrial Strategy for Oxfordshire published alongside those for Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and the South East Midlands as part of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.
This Local Industrial Strategy sets out an ambitious plan to build on Oxfordshire’s strong foundations and world-leading assets, to deliver transformative growth which is clean and sustainable and delivers prosperity for all communities across the county. It will deliver the aims of the national Industrial Strategy, government’s long term plan to boost productivity, by backing businesses and investing in skills, industries and infrastructure.
It presents a longterm framework against which private and public sector investment decisions can be assessed, grouped around the five foundations of productivity:
- Ideas: Establish a globally connected and competitive innovation economy;
- People: Develop a more responsive skills ecosystem creating better opportunities for all;
- Infrastructure: Enable greater connectivity and accessibility especially across key growth locations;
- Business environment: Become a powerhouse for commercialising transformative technologies; and
- Places: Develop Oxfordshire as a living laboratory to help solve the UK’s Grand Challenges.
