Four new Sector Deals have been announced by the Department for Business as part of the UK’s Industrial Strategy. The deals are partnerships between government and industry on sector-specific issues, which will create opportunities for business to boost productivity, employment, innovation and skills. The first sectors to be awarded deals are construction, artificial intelligence, automotive and life sciences. Deals for tourism, creative industries, industrial digitalisation and food manufacturing are expected to be announced in 2018.
A new Food and Drink Council has also been announced which will work with government to promote growth, increase exports and identify challenges and opportunities that will impact on the industry after the UK leaves the EU.
