The aim of the Industrial Strategy is to boost productivity by backing businesses to create good jobs and increase the earning power of people throughout the UK with investment in skills, industries and infrastructure

In Greater Lincolnshire we are developing our Local Industrial Strategy in partnership with government in order to further build on our competitive advantages and to provide a test bed for some nationally important incentives.

We are working with the private, public and third sectors to develop a Local Industrial Strategy for Lincolnshire which will set the economic priorities through to 2030 and beyond and are working in partnership locally to develop the strategy and make a compelling case to government and to the private sector for investment into Lincolnshire.

The LEP has identified 5 areas to focus on Greater Lincolnshire's strongest specialisms and opportunities,
