Government launches next phase of Growth Review
Skills, the rural economy and medium sized businesses will be at the centre of the next stage of the Growth Review, the Government announced this week.
Building on the programme set out in the first Plan for Growth, published at the Budget, the next stage of the review will focus on:
Business Secretary Vince Cable formally launched the next phase of the Growth Review during his visit to Rolls Royce in Derby, where he welcomed the company's commitment to 200 new apprenticeships and broke the ground on a new Learning and Development Centre. He also hosted a round table event with a number of mid-sized businesses from the Rolls Royce supply chain.
Dr Cable said: "We are launching the second stage of the plan for growth with one central purpose - creating the right conditions for business to start up, invest, grow and create jobs.
"We are seeing the evidence this week of successful rebalancing of the economy towards exports and manufacturing, with the announcement of major commitments from Nissan and BMW, and today the commitment from Rolls Royce to an expansion of their Apprenticeship programme."
