The HotSW Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) has been drafted and is awaiting sign-off from Government.

The Progress Statements and Command Paper are published in our Understanding Our Economy section, along with the evidence base being referenced to shape a robust strategy. The LIS is strongly informed by The Heart of the South West Productivity Strategy – Stepping Up to the Challenge – published in spring 2018, and the Prospectus #LivingBetter, launched at the Annual Conference in 2018, which outlines the six key opportunities that have been developed in the area: Nuclear, Marine, Photonics, Big Data, High Value Tourism and Food, Farming and Fishing.
