In Oxfordshire, we benefit from a successful economy with a variety of global assets and it is our aim to create and maintain conditions that make our county the location of choice for world-leading businesses.
Crucial to maximising our global potential is creating investor confidence and creating an infrastructure that is fit-for-purpose; building on Oxfordshire's world-leading centre of knowledge and innovation.
OxLEP's strategies encompass our vision and key priorities of 'Place-making', 'Productivity' and 'Connectivity'.
In July 2019, working with Government, we published a Local Industrial Strategy for Oxfordshire with an ambition to position the county as one of the top-three global innovation ecosystems, highlighting our world-leading science and technology cluster and to be a pioneer for the UK and our emerging transformative technologies and sectors.
