This is your opportunity to influence the development of the West Midlands Local Industrial Strategy for the business, professional and financial services sector.
The Business, Professional and Financial Services (BPFS) sector is one of the largest contributors to the regional economy and is set to grow. As such it is a key sector for the development of a local industrial strategy, which aims to set out a long-term economic strategy for inclusive growth across the region. The West Midlands Combined Authority is currently consulting on all aspects of the draft strategy and CWLEP Growth Hub is hosting a round table event specifically to provide direct opportunity for BPFS businesses based in Coventry and Warwickshire to have their say.
The session will be led by Hilary Smyth-Allen, lead for BPFS sector consultation for WMCA Local Industrial Strategy. Hilary will provide more insight into the plans and potential interventions for the sector than are currently available in the main consultation document, so this is unique opportunity to understand current thinking and influence future strategy.
