BEIS West Midlands
This morning our Business Development Director Claire Court took part in a West and East Midlands BEIS (Business Energy & Industrial Strategy) ministerial round table with Minister for Business and Industry, Nadhim Zahawi MP and Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government, Simon Clarke MP to discuss the Government’s strategy to rebuild the region’s economy in the wake of Covid-19.
The ministers emphasised the Midlands’ key role in the UK’s economy as a whole and in particular, the contribution made by the digital sector. Minister Zahawi highlighted the pressing need to maintain the UK’s strength in R&D and innovation. Minister Clarke agreed that, whilst recovery from the pandemic presents a significant challenge, there are also a number of opportunities, notably in the Midlands’ digital and professional services sectors in which Delta plays a major role.
