In response to the Government’s industrial strategy green paper and being asked lead the digitalisation review by Government, Siemens UK CEO, Juergen Maier said:

“The launch of the industrial strategy green paper marks the start of an important journey for British industry. We need a robust industrial strategy to prepare our economy for the challenges and opportunities of the digital revolution in manufacturing and other sectors.

“The Industrial Digitalisation review will identify the impacts of digitalisation across UK industrial sectors and how government working in partnership with industry can maximise the opportunities from driving digitalisation. We aim to make proposals later this year for an Industrial Digitalisation Sector Deal. I am delighted to lead this important piece of work on behalf of industry which aims to benefit as many people and businesses across the UK as possible.”
