GSK on UK Government’s Industrial Strategy: Meaningful targets, sustained efforts and coherent implementation will be critical to this strategy’s success

LONDON, 29-Nov-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Responding to the launch of the Industrial Strategy White Paper, published today by the UK Government, Phil Thomson, President, Global Affairs, at GSK said:
“A new, long-term industrial strategy for the country is important and welcome. We need to take an integrated approach across government, the public and private sectors, to develop the country’s industries and improve our economic prospects, particularly post-Brexit. Meaningful targets, sustained efforts and coherent implementation will be critical to this strategy’s success.
“Life Sciences can be a major force of the new industrial strategy. With our strong academic science base, world-leading companies and the NHS, we have unique strengths in the UK. Working together, we have the opportunity to make the UK a world-leader in health and science for years to come and help increase overall economic growth.”
