Brexit means business is moving into unchartered territory and government intervention is back in fashion. In a column for the Daily Telegraph, Stephen Welton, chief executive of BGF, explores why business is becoming more supportive of ‘industrial strategy’ and an interventionist government in Brexit’s wake. Welton also discusses the new opportunities that will arise from Brexit and considers what a government ‘industry strategy’ might actually look like.
