Productivity & industrial strategy


As the main long-term, sustainable driver of higher pay, stronger productivity growth lies at the heart of our focus on boosting household incomes. In policy terms, that productivity drive is often delivered through an industrial strategy. We focus on how to deliver an effective industrial strategy, and stronger productivity growth that feeds through into pay packets.
