The key areas under review are as follow:
- Build on the UK’s strengths and extend excellence into the future.
- Close the gaps between the UK’s most productive companies, industries, places and people.
- Make the UK one of the most competitive places in the world to start and grow a business.
Certain sectors have already been given an early sector deal. These include the automotive industry, life sciences, industry 4:0, creative industries and nuclear. Work is already underway with these sectors to develop their key areas of policy and the government support they need.
The government hasn’t set a defined timetable for further sector deals. However, the deadline for the Tourism Sector Deal bid is the end of September 2017.
