Our Local Industrial Strategy will set out a long-term economic vision for Liverpool City Region, providing a framework for our investment decisions, and for our conversations with government about how we work together, through devolution, to maximise prosperity for all people and communities.

Founded on a collaborative approach with our partners, the Local Industrial Strategy will articulate how we will build on our distinctive economic strengths, tackle our challenges, and develop transformational policies to unlock growth and be a catalyst to the development of an inclusive economy.

Aligned with the drivers of productivity and national Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges, our Local Industrial Strategy will be focused across four key priorities:

Good work, health and wellbeing for all;
Vibrant and connected communities;
More businesses innovating and growing;
Clean growth.

The strategy will be underpinned by evidence, and we are building a strong understanding of the City Region’s economic strengths and assets.  This is summarised in a Position Statement, published in July 2019. It provides an overview of progress to date; highlighting what the evidence is telling us about our economy and putting forward some initial thinking on ideas to improve our prosperity and productivity through the strategy.

The final document will be published in March 2020, and between now and then we will engage in a process of engagement with government, partners, wider stakeholders and the public to support us in developing the policies that will flow from the Local Industrial Strategy.
