How can the new industrial strategy benefit the North of England? | SPERI public event

The Government will soon publish its new industrial strategy, but will it benefit people, places and industries in the North?

On November 1st the Commission will publish its Final Report. Join us a week later on Thursday November 9th for a major public event in Sheffield to discuss its findings and to hear from a leading Labour politician about industrial strategy.
