Oxfordshire is a globally-renowned county with one of the strongest economies in the UK, with a successful record securing investment to promote growth.

Why is our Local Industrial Strategy so critical?
We are responding to the Government’s UK Industrial Strategy
Our Local Industrial Strategy directly responds to the UK Industrial Strategy – launched by the Government in November 2017 – which aims to increase growth and productivity across the country and create more prosperous communities.
The UK Industrial Strategy is based on five ‘Foundations’ and four ‘Grand Challenges’ that the Government hopes to address.
The five foundations are:
- Business environment
The four Grand Challenges are:
- Artificial Intelligence and data
- Ageing society
- Clean growth
- Future of mobility
