ESCO Paper - An Industrial Strategy for the Electronics and Electrical Industries

19 October 2016

GAMBICA has co-authored an ESCO position paper, along with BEAMA and NMI, to define a vision for an Industrial Strategy for the Electronics and Electrical Industries. This has been submitted as an annex to the ESCO evidence for the BIS Select Committee inquiry on Industrial Strategy.

The key strategic areas for the ESCO industry are in using electronics and electrical equipment and smart technologies to further the energy, transport and healthcare parts of the economy, and increasing the efficiency of industrial processes across the manufacturing base. The framework policy areas that underpins these advances are essential for inclusion in an industrial strategy between Government and our industry. The impact of the changing relationship with the EU cannot be ignored, and some of the policy areas are reliant on the type of relationship that the UK has with Europe.
