The government’s Green Paper on industrial strategy set out an ambition to make sure industrial strategy works across places. For the TUC, this means creating and sustaining great jobs in every part of the country.
To help build knowledge of what it takes to deliver this, the TUC is publishing new research on how to deliver regional industrial strategy in three diverse areas: Liverpool City Region, Tees Valley and Norfolk and Suffolk.
Join us as we publish findings in the launch of our new publication, Great Jobs in Great Places: New approaches to regional industrial strategy.

Frances O’Grady, General Secretary, TUC
Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
Rebecca Long Bailey, Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
