Be adaptable and skilled

“What we can compete on is being highly flexible, highly adaptable, highly skilled and moving up the value chain, and what we have to do is make sure we’ve got the capacity to do that. Now ultimately that’s not about Government picking winners, it’s about Government making sure that we’ve got the circumstances – particularly the skill level in our people – that enable firms to tap those opportunities.

Now obviously that change is never easy but it really is the only path we have to ensuring we grow our prosperity in the decades ahead. That is to be highly, highly skilled, highly adaptable nation that is able to find our place in the markets that are growing on our doorstep.”
