Posted on by in News

nMetalsForumLogoJan14A future vision for UK industry has been set out by the Government through its Industrial Strategy framework which also includes the Industrial Strategy for Construction.

In response the Metals Forum, the UK’s metals sectors have come together to articulate their future vision for metals in the UK with the development of an Industrial Strategy for Metals. This development of the strategy is being supported by the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills.

The Industrial Strategy for Metals will set out future pathways for metals in the UK in areas such as skills, innovation and sustainability. In developing the strategy, industry is working with stakeholders including customers, supply chain partners, the Government and Trade Unions to build the partnership models necessary for long-term success.

The Steering Group for the strategy development is chaired by Jon Bolton from Tata Steel and is overseen by the Metals Forum through its Chairman, Sarah McCann-Bartlett, Director General of the BCSA.

The strategy is being developed through five work streams including:

•    Education, Skills & Training
•    Supply Chain & Partnerships
•    Sustainability
•    Communication & Promotion
•    Innovation and R&D

The Industrial Strategy for Metals is due to be launched this year.
