To support the development of our Local Industrial Strategy, have established four new private-sector led advisory boards.
These boards will help provide, contribute and scrutinise the evidence for each sector to ensure that it truly reflects the situation in the Humber. They will also identify future opportunities, barriers and challenges for the sector.
These boards will work to identify policy issues that may be holding back the sector, as well as identifying priority actions that will create productive sectors and form part of the key evidence in the industrial strategy, including setting out what investments will be made by local partners
Finally, the boards will identify what ‘freedoms and flexibilities’ may be needed from the government to help grow the sectors.
