The West Midlands generates around 6% of the UK’s economic output. While productivity has increased by more than double the UK rate over the past year, we have significant additional potential.

If our economy performed to its true potential, we would be £16.9bn larger. So our Industrial Strategy aims to bring together public services, communities, training providers and businesses with a shared vision for inclusive growth, showing how we can reach our potential and do so in ways that enable all our communities to benefit.
