Speaking on the release of the Government’s Industrial Strategy, James Stewart, Vice Chair at KPMG UK said:
“To succeed as a global trading nation Britain faces a number of challenges and we welcome today’s Industrial Strategy white paper as part of the answer. A greater level of partnership between business and government is now essential to making these plans a success.
“As a country, we have to work together to increase the prosperity of all our people. Addressing low productivity, investing in our infrastructure and upskilling our workforce are all important aspects of creating a better environment for us all to live and work.
“We look forward to working with the Government, playing our part in creating a modern and dynamic economy.”
