Inaugural APMG Christmas Lunch

Inaugural APMG Christmas Lunch

28th November 2018

On Wednesday 28th November, the APMG hosted a Christmas lunch in the House of Commons with a range of APMG members and Parliamentarians to discuss the Local Industrial Strategies (LIS) and manufacturing.

Attendees heard from Lord Inglewood, Chair of the Cumbria LEP who presented an update on the process of the Cumbria LIS and the ensuing discussion saw members considering some of the key challenges that must be at the front of the creation of the LIS, from the importance of skills, to bridging the gap between business and politicians and how areas can learn and share best practice.

We will be taking the findings of this discussion forward into our planned work stream for 2019, and look forward to sharing more details with you in the New Year.
